being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which wants to be done: the dictation of the materials.

Repetition, balance, and color are key concepts in my practice.

My process begins with rules that are based on color and shape within the given system. By adhering an authentic amount of calculated uncertainty, the outcome appears simple yet visually intense.

My work explores simple design, organic growth pattern, and color theory.Using a model of improvised structure, I aim to push the boundary between intuitive and systemic. I have a particular affinity for color and its effects on optical visuals; by restricting color, it allows for subtle and playful shifts to occur.
