In creating shapes on the canvas, I first began by painting triangles - I thought about how their lines created the shape. Now, I think about both their lines and their edges developing a central space. I am interested in how geometry creates expansive color space.

My work is the human element tied with expansiveness. The hand-made shapes wrap around the edges which creates a center in each painting. ...

My work is the human element tied with expansiveness. The hand-made shapes wrap around the edges which creates a center in each painting. The middle of the paintings is a zone of intense of color. I want to saturate the viewer with color.
