I am fascinated by the shapes I see in water, trees and rocks. I look for negative and positive shapes, weave them together, and give equal attention to subject and background. I see nature as a woven fabric with all things interconnected. Understanding so much complexity is always out of reach. Ultimately, my goal is to create a personal statement about places I have been. I use my past experience with calligraphy, graphic design and silk painting to create a distinct style.
