My work stems from the desire to create a structure of perfection within the frames of a canvas. I am a systematic artist employing basic formal elements such as line, shape space and texture. While at the same time allowing ad hoc spontaneously occurring variables to create a painting. My work originates from the complexities found in folding paper. This has expanded to other materials and the different outcomes they produce. There is a format to my artwork. I set up a system in which I must follow and allow the material to decide where the variations occur. This is a process in which I work and that is reflected in the finality of the pieces.
