“My work begins with interpreting the meaning of space.”

This reinterpreted expanse is then filled with geometric shapes - lines - points. The process focuses on empty space and the intervals between forms.

Repetitive attempts at composition assemble the geometric shapes into their final form achieving the critical aesthetic goal.

There is a moment of enlightenment from this recurrent process and artistic awareness allows me to know the point at which I must stop -- to leave the space, the beauty of space.

The beauty of space is the most important factor in my works. These conscious voids allow the viewers’ imagination at to enter and connect.

My work provides a respite from this era of overworked digital media and represents the beauty of empty space defined through the aesthetics of minimal expression.
