Artist Statement

"The paintings explore the earth, the body, the environment and the science that binds it all together. These pieces are acrylic pour paintings created by combining acrylic paint with various substrates and silicone oil. The layers of paint react within the mixture according to their density, and form an abstract design. I interpret the design in terms of land, water, sky, body, and natural elements and phenomena. My aim in creating this collection is to present unusual and alternative views of life and nature in order to inspire viewers to 'widen their world."
