My work with concentric circles is a break from tradition. I'm inspired by the cyclical nature of life and the universe;
and the balance, symmetry and energy for which the circles represent. A new expression in modern art.
I use circles as both methods and tools to express the way I perceive the universe and the world around me. By painting in concentric circles, I hope to unfurl a brand new way to relate to subject matter and narrate unique visual stories.
All circles are painted free hand. Works from my studio in Houston, Texas.
