Full Artist's statement
I believe that art can simply be a pure exercise in pattern and color. I concentrate on assembling pleasing color palates and striking pattern in order to produce something visually stimulating. I like the practice of mark making, the effect of mixing textures and media, and the translucence of layering. My pieces have a harmonious patterned aesthetic that incorporates a wide swath of materials, surfaces, and techniques. The finished pieces can be viewed numerous times before all of the individual elements can be isolated by the viewer.
