Artist's Statement

My artistic practice investigates pattern, color, and line, through various mediums including painting, drawing, photography, print media, and digital art. Using an approach through intuition, I explore the infinite potential of art. When I begin a new work I rarely have a vision of what I am going to draw, paint, etc. I let my imagination guide the process and as I create images I respond to the lines and shapes that begin to unfold. My inspirations come from references to the patterns and forms that exist within nature and architecture. Recurring themes in my work include growth, transformation, fluidity, symmetry, asymmetry, chaos, and order.
