“I find myself exploring various spaces between representational and non-representational, objective and non-objective or natural design verses human design. It is when these two opposing ideas meander into one another creating a less defined idea or vagueness that interest me. My work usually has a background layer and a foreground layer made up of various markings. There is no perspective, however there is depth.The depth becomes the middle space. I am influenced by everyday observations of nature such as the play of light on trees, the movement of water or the arrangement of plant material. These observations, being micro or macro, make their way into my image making.”
