I have been painting for fifteen years as a self-taught artist. I am interested in texture, color, and geometric grids. The grid provides a structural base to my paintings and connects the random smaller pieces together. Some of my paintings portray aerial views of nature or space. Other paintings have individual abstract squares placed together to form larger compositions. A sense of depth and motion are created by layering textures and colors. Sometime the textures and colors are done simultaneously producing a random outcome. At other times, I separate the layers allowing for more thought on color and placement.
