Abstract Painting


Drawing equally from the worlds of painting and design, my abstract paintings from the Floating Tile Series use a variety of textured surfaces to suggest a tile hovering close-by in thin air. Subtle metallic effects lend a kinetic quality to each piece, leading to different visual experiences depending on your vantage point in the room. With a quiet tip-of-the-hat to "trick-of-the-eye,' I focus on creating perky spaces populated with simply shaped denizens of the dreamscape.
