I’ve been passionate about art since I was a child. But I’ve also been passionate about science. I wanted my education to appeal to my scientific side, so I studied electronics, then worked in the high tech field for years, all the while continuing to paint.  I am drawn to both poles—the logical and the creative, the rational and the emotional. And because of this double attraction, I see how these poles are connected. The most spontaneous things have an implicit order, just as the most ordered things contain surprises. This balancing of apparent opposites plays out in my abstract paintings. While each painting surprises me as I throw myself into its creation, my work is also characterized by strong structural elements—recurring textures or shapes, patterns of colour, a sense of balance—that remind viewers that this is not just chaos. Instead, it’s a new, open way of viewing familiar elements, a way that invites new insights and moments of fresh discovery.
