"Being a maker, I feel compelled to create. I focus this energy into an art practice working with intuition, rhythm, and pattern. The practice is a meditation that allows me to slow down and translate this experience into a visual language. This energy sets a rhythm that informs my process of making things. The rhythm is realized through the various stages that I take a piece through as dictated by my materials, from painting, to deconstructing and re-assembling. I am driven by the challenge of creating a visual balance through the physicality of materials and ephemera of experience."
