I was born in Cusseta-Chattahoochee County Georgia in 1963 and grew up in New Jersey, Hawaii, Kansas and Virginia.
I moved from New York to San Francisco in 1993, and began to take my art making more seriously.
My work is made using acrylic, enamel, metal leaf, paper & polyurethane, applied to glass and wood panel. These materials allow me to make pictures with loose narrative in rigidly controlled space.
Making my work helps me focus on my obsession with counting systems, mathematics and numbers. The calculations I do by hand, the colors I use to represent these calculations and the grids into which I place them give me full control of the process and product of my work. As I seek challenges to this control, I find it is most often relinquished to repeated patterns. These emerge as numbers, and the colors that represent them, proceed across, down and through a piece, regardless its size or shape.
