Color spotting is a passion of mine. Always in pursuit of a “color story,” or the ways color can identify a habitat or encode a culture, I create chromatic equivalents for both physical and numinous occurrences. I gather color clues and create hybridized indigenous palettes that are translated into paintings, drawings, photographs, and site-specific installations. I am influenced by everything, and my work, in turn, is a restructuring of this evershifting vantage point. Color functions as both subject and object in my artwork, and it is steeped in a process of analysis and synthesis of spectral phenomena, both real and imagined.
