While I fully control the process and product of my work, I seek and welcome challenges to this control. Colors I choose and the grids into which I place them afford me some control of the content of the space. This control is relinquished to the random and repeated patterns that emerge as colors proceed across, down and through the piece, regardless its size or shape.
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.
I was born in Georgia and grew up in New Jersey, Hawaii, Kansas and Virginia.
I moved from New York to San Francisco in 1993; shortly after that move, I started to take art making more seriously.
