The motivation for my work is a desire to seek beauty and restore a personal sense of order and harmony to a habitat that can be as unpredictable as it is chaotic, whether that tension renders itself visible in the work, or whether it is implied, lying just beneath the surface. 


My work has evolved from pure explorations of abstract form and color to a more formal development of monochromatic ‘Scapes’ that reduce geometrical elements to their minimum expression, both in palette and form, and to highly dynamic and complex digital works that reflect a more complex visual vocabulary that evokes a feeling of impending movement, interaction and drama. 

I am as interested in ‘deconstructing’ the work as I am in its construction, and I am drawn to consider endless juxtapositions.
