As an artist I am interested in visually translating the intuitive connection I feel exists between art and science, creativity and research.
Chemistry, history, mathematics, storytelling, music, poetry, archeology, astronomy, language, travel, and more, are all a source of inspiration.
After deciding on a subject, I let the research intuitively guide me towards imagery. Sketching and drawing at length, I develop visual systems containing imaginary codes that I will use in the paintings. At this final stage, the systems and visual permutations morph again to become free of references. They generate their own worlds many steps removed from the original subject.
This practice allows me the latitude to express all my interests and to funnel them into art making. The process is ongoing and always present in my life.
