We live in a chaotic world with myriad electronic devices, 24/7 worldwide news and hectic personal lives. Originally I thought that my fascination with grids stemmed from their pervasive presence as the ultimate sign of humans on earth. Now I realize that they are my way of trying to make order from the chaos. I always have a reference to my feelings about the fast-disappearing natural world in my mind. I learn from many artists, some faves are Klee, Stuart Davis, Chuck Close, Joan Mitchell, could list pages of them.
