Artist Statement

    

 I create my artwork through the slow application of decisive marks. As I draw, I follow a loose formula based on what I've already drawn, filling areas of the picture plane gradually, without making initial layout sketches. This makes the final product somewhat unexpected and emergent. It is doodling with restraint. Lines build up into geometric shapes and patterns of varying density and scale to "grow" forms that look organic. Shapes push and pack in organized clusters, accumulating in ways analogous to the growth of cells, tissues, organs, organisms, and communities. I investigate natural phenomena and I attempt to describe my limited understanding of them using a visual mathematical language.
