I’m an artist living in Bloomington, Indiana. I create abstract art through my experiences that come from the world around me. My technical background as a chemist also greatly influences my work. I begin the artistic process by translating my ideas to sketches. Once the preliminary ideas feel right, I attempt to transfer these ideas into a final work of art. My pieces include layers of color, lines, shapes and textures to impart a tension that exists on and beneath the art surface. Areas of the painting are repeatedly re-worked until a final compositional rhythm is achieved that builds in interest with repeated viewings.
