The formal foundation of all my work lays in color, geometry, and the expanded field of painting. From this base the work develops and changes to adapt to specific projects, constraints or locations. Most of my work is first contemplated in writing and thereafter planned through a series of sketches and architectural drawings. The selection of the materials and color palette is an important and integral part of the planning process. I often use materials that are not considered traditional art materials, which forces me to continuously develop new techniques. As I start working with the materials, intuition takes over the creative process. I enjoy having a dialogue with the materials that I use and enjoy being surprised and challenged by unexpected results.
