The dominant curiosity in my artistic practice, explored through works on paper, encaustic, and dry transfer, bridges art and architecture to explore investigations into spatial culture and communicative relationships related to time and distance.
I take inspiration from pattern, minutia, flow, rigidity and chance. Current work focuses specifically on issues of thought, emotion, and expression and often relies on the swarming and flocking of a variety of spatial systems.
As an architect, artist and graphic designer, I find constant inspiration and overlap between these disciplines—an essential process that influences my practice through spatial, numerical and natural constructs.
