I produce luminous wall sculptures. I manipulate paint, acrylic, and epoxy to create cohesive works. The ability to conduct how light interacts with surfaces is my attempt to create a visual braille: a language by which colour and composition can be felt and not merely observed.

My acrylic sculptures are clear plexiglass objects encased within translucent materials. I embed fluorescent pigments which project through the edges. When light strikes the artwork it appears to change, inviting the viewer to visually travel through the composition.

My latest works are large-scale paintings with embedded circular sculptures that create changing reflections. Foreground and background become indistinguishable, creating new modes of interference in abstraction.

I completed my BFA at the University of Texas at Austin in 1990. My work has been commissioned by Tiffany & Co, George Brown College, Bonjour Capital, among others. I am represented by reference: contemporary in Toronto.
