What are the major themes you pursue in your work?
I’m drawn to the endless geometry, structure, and sometimes lack of order of the urban environment, and I think that’s where my ideas begin. I’ve studied landscape architecture and urban design, both of which seek to create order where there is chaos. I look at my painting in the same way. With a little sense of where I want to end up, I start to apply and scrape away paint to and from the canvas or wood board until something concrete materializes that I can build upon.
