My paintings can be thought of as both expressionistic and minimal. I’ve always been attracted to grids and structures, and so my current imagery evokes architectural lattice or tile patterns. I am attracted to the physicality of ceramic decoration and the tile work of Latin cultures: although orderly in composition, these objects can be pleasingly imperfect and rough-hewn. Repetition in these designs serves to create a soothing focus within circular movement, something I am after using the painterly tools of pigment and light.
