I approach my work as a fascinating challenge to overcome while capturing the essence of an idea, person, object, or feeling through color, line, form and texture with a minimalistic sensibility. The use of the circle or the sphere is always present and helps me to find the underlying core of unity, in expressing both my inner and outer worlds. I use the sense of freedom I feel during the creative process to organically shift between media to further enhance the exploration of a particular concept or idea.
