My work is a study of systems, process, repetition and endurance. Each piece begins with a set of rules or a central concept. Sometimes the system is followed through to the completion of the piece (complete coverage of the paper). Other times it is followed until something unexpected emerges and a new route is chosen. Although the work is system/concept driven, the primary goal is always a beautiful image.

It is about the purity of the idea vs. its real world actualization…the vision in the artist's mind vs. the reality of the completed work.
