My work is a material expression of the perceptual and fleeting qualities of the outward world. I am attracted to mutable materials like dichroic film, iridescent cellophane, plastic, mirror and glass which allow me to explore optical phenomena and create prismatic effects within my work. My abstract compositions explore the intersections of dark and light utilizing geometric shapes and smokey, atmospheric effects within the painting. The inclusion of sculptural principles leads towards the materiality of color and spatially experiential plasticity.

In my video works, I create 'in lens' effects by experimenting with prisms, reflections, scrims, and projections to evoke a dream-like and fluid atmosphere.
