I am passionate about patterns and their formation. The space between the big picture and the minute detail contains infinite possibilities for exploration. I like to play in those spaces, seeking to incorporate bits of the everyday into my multimedia work. I use my work as a way to explore meaning making in our lives. Pattern formation, identification, and naming all contribute to the ways in which we as humans create and sustain a sense of meaning in our meaningless lives and I seek to engage the viewer in conversation about how they themselves make meaning in their own life.
As a designer, my work tends towards the graphic, using classic design elements like color, contrast, and repetition as the language through which I capture and share what I find fascinating in the world. Exploring those little obsessive moments I find myself getting lost in are a way to connect my experience of the world to those of my fellow human beings.

Living in a more urban area, I take refuge in the softness and visual textures in nature anywhere I can find it, whether it is through scenes on a walk through the neighborhood or taking trips to more rural areas. Often I will take a photo and come back to it later.
Carving relief prints is a whole odyssey in itself of revealing more of these patterns of textures, light, and shadow that I may not have experienced fully in the original moment of seeing. The process of creating relief prints appeals to me, as one is lead by the subtractive process of carving the light. Then the next step of printing from the carving is another unfolding. It feels good to never know the results and to just trust in the doing.
