My paintings center around process, both physically and conceptually. I layer ideas drawn from natural forms until they become their own humid amalgamations in a suspended state of disintegration and growth. Highly tactile, accumulations bubbling with repetitions and deviations echo the precarious intricate density of barely-there order in the natural world.  My work uses cycles, increments, patterns that come undone, rejuvenation and oscillation, mirroring the micro and the macro in organic abstractions that explore the connectedness of experience. Elements are submerged, obscured or partially revealed as they build up, break down and remnants are left behind in a watery state of suspended disintegration and growth.  An intermingling of high and low, contemplation and spontaneity,  biology and fantasy, these saturated paintings mix wonder, ebullience, persistence and unease.
