I was at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) when I began experimenting with creating images that played one color against another. I am fascinated by the way the human eye is trained by nature to see in a certain manner; we perceive familiar shapes and colors and are almost programmed to accept a certain view.

The aerial images have evolved from my exploration of the collage medium. Using colors, shapes, layers and textures, this series combines my signature, “give a new perspective” style with my love of the abstract. While clearly a more fanciful play, once again the pieces challenge perceptions—abstract art or geography—either way they are new ways to look at something assumed to be familiar. Within each series, I am exploring a theme that might be pattern, paint or paper.

I am told my work is inventive, but my real goal is to excite others. In that calling I find freedom, self expression and independence.
