I love both science and nature. As a former engineer, the precision of science lets me feel in control. But as an artist, I’m also drawn to the diversity of the natural world. I create artwork that blends this duality, finding examples of their union all around me. I see beauty in parallel railway tracks overgrown with tangled weeds. Or the ordered lines of a musical staff sprinkled with random notes. I merge logical patterns with creative elements to tell stories in my colorful, abstract paintings.
Each painting starts with a story. First setting in a framework of structure, I then overrun it with a flow of organic shapes to support the narrative. My first layer might be a rigid grid that will support a tumble of cascading vines. Or a wall of vertical columns overrun by an army of circles. I artfully meld science and nature in my work to show the beauty of these two opposites and their symbiotic balance as they blend beautifully together to tell a story.
