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 a field of grass.



The Starscape paintings are a profusion of minuscule stars, each star created with multiple, intersecting lines.The stars are densely layered, forming crystalline structures that, from the viewer's perspective, blur into soft focus. Some Starscapes are abstract, while others are inspired by actual outer space phenomena.



The Sealine paintings are composed exclusively of millimeter-wide lines that cross the entire canvas horizontally, overlapping in an organic manner. The lines are straight or undulating , creating 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, conveying 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, creating a cohesive and centralized design.
