Artist's Statement

Geometric abstract painting is a persistent theme in my work.

I am currently working on a series of large Labyrinth paintings.
It is a series that I started in 2014 when I became interested in this ancient cross cultural form as a basis for the structure of painting and drawing. The labyrinth painting has a heart, a destination, yet the labyrinth painting also has a winding path that the viewer can trace with either their fingers or eyes to experience a form of meditation. Thus, the painting can become a way to slow down and gain personal insight.

I also always studying geometry in art, how geometric forms interact, through my own improvisations.

Additionally, I feel connected to nature so that some paintings refer to recognizable things in nature: gardens, trees, flowers, mountains, etc. For example, I love the shape of the palm tree, partially an influence of having enjoyed the Brazilian tropical climate that is so wonderful.
