"Obsessed by Patterns"
My work reflects my passion for patterns as well as my attraction to chance (I have several sets of dice that I use when I want to take a undirected course).

Sandpaper is an essential material for me and I use it extensively as my work depends on many layers of media some of which are removed by sanding. For this reason most of my work is on wood panel.

I have a general idea of my painting before I start but any sketching I do ends up being part of the finished product. I'll often paint and repaint the same image (sanding in between layers) seeing if these iterations come up with a different look. Any traces of earlier applications are an integral part of each piece.
