Much of the inspiration for my work comes from my lifelong fascination with science and my former work in the medical profession. Translating biology into layman’s language for others has always been a part of my life and has become the impetus behind my recent art.Most of my work consists of large drawings, paintings and cut paper. My abstract forms share many qualities with live organisms: flowing, expanding, growing, repeating and proliferating, and remind viewers that the interconnections of biologic systems reflect the interconnections between people, groups and communities.
