Artist Statement

Deeply influenced by Op Art, my work invites viewers to engage on an individual level with the idea of spirituality. Inspired by various religious symbols, objects and decorative patterns, I create paintings, works on paper and art objects that speak to spiritual awareness and ritual. My practice with ritual began in my very first body of work inspired by Giotto, Christianity and religious rituals, which uncovered a life-long process of merging ritual observation with mark making. My studio practice is executed with strategic mathematical precision that allows a truly submissive response to the moment. My process explores the concepts of structure driving accessibility to a spiritual or meditative experience.
