I enjoy looking at the world in practical but whimsical ways. As a result, I create work inspired by my surroundings. I love when mark making does most of the work through subtle pattern and repetition, creating visual motion. I love seeing how far I can push materials to their limits and exploring what they are capable of. Being very experimental in my practice and keeping viewers on their toes is my favorite form of art.
