Originating in just how far I could take "fortified" paint to the point of sculpture, I now incorporate objects that imply language directly into the surface so that the paintings are a hybrid of terrain and text.
Awareness of the vibrational nature of the universe informs every aspect of my work: gilded paintings with metal leaf, pigments, crystals and mother-of-pearl or digital prints of painted gouache mandalas.
My work deals with contemporary political issues such as consumerism, globalization and
international power relations through an examination of visual symbolic language such as
corporate logos, national flags, and product packaging.
As an installation artist and painter, I have worked with many materials. For my sand painting
series, I have created nearly 1000 spontaneous, ephemeral sand paintings and currently creating similar
works on canvas
