Making art is both serious and fun. I am interested in the way randomness and chaos interact with order and planning in the act of creation. I create texture, experiment with and play with materials, and use methods whose results cannot be completely determined. The disorder I create sets up a tension that forces me to create at least some order to so that a successful finished product can result. I sometimes turn my paintings into “sculpture on canvas.” My art is both representational (often figurative) and abstracted. I am interested in making playful and joyous work. I primarily use hand methods in all my work, thereby announcing that it was done by a person, with all the quirkiness that that entails.I have a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
