As someone whose artistic expression is based on photography, I find transforming my photos into surface patterns a focal interest. This activity bridges the subjects of graphics, product design, textiles and fine art. I am often amazed at the shapes and forms that I find hidden in my photos. By using an original piece I use repetition to create something new. I strive for a design with color and patterns that can be used in a variety of ways and aim for technical excellence in every piece. The end result can never be predicted, so the interest of creating is never tedious and forever rewarding.
