The energy forces that run our cosmos interest me: the constellations, the insides of clouds and storms; the synapse circulation in our brains. I can imagine how these forces may cause molecules to jostle and change at a micro level and I can imagine the movement of constellations at the macro level. They hover in space and their energy compels progression, explosion and growth patterns. The dots can represent the unseen world of throbbing particles and the minute life forms seen in microscopes.
Artist Bio / CV
Clouds are an ongoing theme that I return to again and again. It could be that living in Oregon for the bigger share of my life and witnessing cloud banks, fog, drizzle and downpours for months on end has given me an edge into the qualities of those illusive things. I have walked into them while hiking, walked under them on Mt. Hood, watched them roll in and bump into the Cascade Range and then drop snow up high and rain on me.
My first art education was a BFA at the Pacific NW College of Art in Portland OR; An MFA at Carnegie-Mellon University followed. I have spent much valuable working time at the MacDowell and Ragdale residencies.
