Rocks & Stars Series
My latest series “Rocks & Stars” is inspired by imagery streamed to earth from the International Space Station. I am captivated by the idea of the cosmos in formation, flowing rocks, exploding stars, hurtling meteors and the myriad of new discoveries shaping our view of the universe.

My work is entirely abstract, and from imagination, but while painting, I think of the tiny jewel that is earth spinning away in the solar system. I keep my paint fluid, so that it too has spin and flow, pouring it on, one layer at a time. Part of the excitement is to see how the layers interact in an organic way.
