As an artist, I am interested in questions about time, randomness, freedom, patterns, permanence, and the nature of creativity. Currently, my work is inspired by the abstract expressionism of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. I am also very much interested in exploring new media, such as the world wide web and programming to push art into spaces usually reserved for commercial endeavors.
