"For my BIOMES series, I abstracted environments such as woodlands, deserts, grasslands, and tundras.  I created these acrylic palette knife paintings while contemplating the importance of symbiosis in sustainability.  Each of the twelve vivid impasto paintings included in this series offer the viewer an evocative haptic/optic experience, making them individually and collectively more memorable despite their diminutive size."
