After a nearly 20 year career in Informatics writing code and managing developers, I was compelled to spend the majority of my time painting. I view my work as linear chaos: creating chaos through layers of line and color. Linearity and chaos seem, at first, to be opposing ideas. But, if you look long enough at any structure considered linear, even the rules that govern our world, you find chaos. As it is with life, so it is with art.
