 In my abstract I consider the idea of structural places that provide both a physical and an emotional habitat. The urgency in the making of the work always lies in the desire to build in two dimensions, and to always search for an assemblage of connections and relationships. My interest in interiors and architectural exteriors always plays a role in all that I make. Linear and geometric elements are the foundation as I work from beginning to end. The resulting images are representative of nonphysical fabricated structures and places that are meaningful to me and evoke a range of personal responses from comfortable to uneasy.
