I am fascinated by the potential of a second life in my visual works as they are recast and translated into the digital realm, becoming resources for the creation of patterns. In part, my interest in pattern evolved as I explored sustainability strategies, but I have been fascinated by the potency of pattern in fabric and fashion for most of my life.

The digital realm allows me to engage in the creation of digital patterns without restraining the visceral, physical methods I use in painting and drawing the originals. It is in fact the presence of energy, complexity, and organic identity within the formal structure of these patterns that I find compelling.
