In this portfolio of images is a series of abstract patterns and colors found in nature, dreams, fire and water. Much of their creation happens as I translate the world around me and inside of me into shapes and colors.

I often change my plans as I work, waiting to see how the image developes and allowing for spontanous changes, often dumping my beginning plans altogether. It is never a fixed plan anyway.
