The Grassland paintings are abstractions of real and imagined grasslands of planet Earth. They are composed exclusively of short, wavering vertical lines. The density of lines and variety of colors vibrate and fluctuate in a visual parallel to the wavering motion of an actual field of grass.



The Starscape paintings are completely abstract and create a visual experience that is far removed from nature. Created with a profusion of multi-directional lines, they utilize systematic application techniques that explore the potential of various forms of line as a basic component.



The Sealine paintings are composed exclusively of millimeter-wide lines that cross the entire canvas horizontally and overlap in an organic manner. The lines are straight or undulating and create optical effects through color relationships and extensive layering.



The Seascape paintings are composed exclusively of horizontal lines of varying lengths and widths. Some are composed of lines that span the entire length of the canvas. Others are made using very short lines that vary in width and length to convey depth and motion.



The Mandala paintings are composed of millimeter-wide lines layered densely and arranged in many different overlapping directions.  The profusion of lines coalesces in the eye of the viewer to create a cohesive and centralized design.
