“Through “new eyes” I look in all directions as I wander, and I discover unique and fascinating details in the familiar: forms and textures in a special light such as the arabesque of a curled hanging wire, the painterly shadow of a bicycle pedal on concrete; the fracture of light into jewel-like ripples through construction mesh, the multi-layered reflections of the surroundings in glass, chrome, and plastics. My art is about discovering the poetry that surrounds us. Through abstract forms, patterns, lines, colors, textures the compositions hold an alluring mystery.”
