My focus is on the beauty and enigma of light and color.

I target the act of perception and the psychological responses to light and color that can open to the viewer. I’m interested in color phenomena; the ability for color relationships to produce phantom colors in addition to the actual paint surface. (film color)

My supports are usually translucent to allow light to pass through the paint surface and create an interaction with the changing light in the room.

My color selections are chosen through conceptual systems I develop to bring together unexpected color partners. Collecting colors over the course of a year on a hiking trail to develop a palette of 72 unique colors is one example.  I prefer to engage with colors of the natural world, particularly those that escape notice.

I crave beauty and I work to reduce ideas to utter simplicity.
