Artist Statement: "I find surface deterioration – the way nature transforms elements through oxidation, peeling paint and corrosion – to be very appealing. The essence of texture and color is transformed and revealed in a sensual abstract composition. I like to build texture slowly, layer upon layer, until a rich surface begins to emerge. Each layer of under paint seems to peek through leaving a glimpse of what once existed. In my work, I often explore the richness of a fleeting moment in time; such as a fragmented silhouette of a tree, or a flickering shadow on a weathered surface, and the beauty of a repeated pattern. Each fleeting moment acts as a poignant reminder of the joy in nature that surrounds us all, inviting our presence and quiet reflections."
