The visual language of geometric and organic pattern is fundamental to my work. I establish a universe of DNA, light, sound waves, magnetic fields and chemical bonds. Biological, symbolic, cosmological and, at times, erotically explicit forms, are pieced together as "collage inlays," depicting worlds within worlds built of patterns in relationship. All of my works are about movement, its sources and forces, and the suggestion that everything, even the spin of an electron, has vitality and identity, that a single desire or gesture can ripple throughout space and time. I believe new constructs of visual pattern release a viewer's mind from old patterns of perception. Each of my works is meant to provoke heightened awareness and personal inquiry.
