As a painter working primarily in acrylics and Chinese ink, I am inspired by Chinese calligraphy and American graffiti. I employ gestural brush strokes and asemic marks to produce energetic abstract works with a visual language of their own. An East coast native, my work is informed by dunes of the Atlantic barrier islands and ridges and valleys of the Appalachian Mountains. I currently live and work in the Washington, DC area.
