Artist Statement

My designs are really just compilations of rudimentary marks that build one upon another in an organic way. Improvisation and intuition are what I rely on when working on a composition. These marks are simple in and of themselves, but as they add up, complexity, movement, and even narrative can emerge. My art is fundamentally abstract, so I have no interest in directly referencing things or places. I can, however, allude to them in the language of abstraction. I’m inspired by technology in all its forms. Machinery is ever fascinating to me as well as science fiction, so aspects of those worlds tend to surface in my designs. I also have a great affinity for color. I’m a fan of the idea that color is like the musical notes of a song and the lines I carve are like the lyrics. Both play a role, but in different ways.
