Artist Statement

Echoing an almost child-like curiosity, my work attempts to balance the wonder of experience with the patterns and rhythms of familiar materials. My intent is to create interactive experiences that engage multiple senses and encourage personal exploration by drawing viewers into the creation or final presentation of a piece. By using intense colors and everyday manufactured materials I hope to create bright spots that appear playful and approachable while questioning authority and challenging social norms.
