I try to clear my head and begin each painting with no destination in mind. Lines and circles connect and move freely across the surface. Then I move from chaos to order by embellishing the lines with dots and colors that reflect the emerging theme of each work. Meaning emerges as I near completion of the painting. The results often resemble the very large or the very small, organisms on the cellular level viewed through a microscope, or satellite images of Earth landforms and bodies of water. Painting is how I connect to the world, large and small.
