My main area of interest is abstract painting. My paintings are informed by the patterns that exist in the various constructions that we exist in. I am fascinated by random patterns that cityscapes create especially in the industrial parts of East Vancouver. I frequently use found wood and carve, draw and layer the surfaces. I love to recontextualize both urban and rural spaces using a vivid color palate. I use free-form patterns of lines or circles to create a unique visual language that allows for multiple interpretations. I am continually observing and documenting the world around me. My inspiration can be generated by almost anything.
