"I work within the boundary between intuitive and systemic. By using a set of givens and possibilities to determine the end result, and adhering an authentic amount of calculated uncertainty, the outcome is simple yet visually intense. With my wood grain inspired paintings, I came across a wooden circular table-top at a home improvement store which was quickly followed by an "a-ha" moment. I realized I could adhere my natural color sensibility to the beautiful organic lines of the grain and knots."
