my current work is the result of combining my interest in stripes, marks and/or textures with the mystery of what is usually unseen, ranging from the cosmic to the microscopic. i like the idea of an underlying order amidst a seemingly chaotic situation.

my process often starts with a sort of "stream of consciousness" doodling, either on the canvas or computer. i then look for elements that will complement those existing, either in their relation to them or, more desirably, in juxtaposition to them. i like to use oil sticks, often with the aid of tape and stencils. i find the rough texture and depth of the crayon to be beautiful.

my goal is primarily for visual impact with, quite often, a more subtle underlying meaning. I hope to produce work that is striking, has depth and evokes some sense of a mysterious beauty.
