In my paintings, complexity grows from a simple set of rules where the whole becomes more than the sum of its parts. Colors are layered, and marks accumulate over repeating patterns of circles, squares and triangles. My process allows me to explore the relationship of part to whole, individual to community, species to biosphere, galaxy to universe, and universe to multiverse as I move between personal, microscopic and macroscopic perspectives.
