"My work begins as an exploratory process of mark making and automatic drawing, how the movement of each line relates to the next. The use of color, various types of media and layered drawings create a visual dialogue, producing a more intricate image. Although images and ideas salient to the viewer often emerge, I hope to communicate through the exchange of purposeful and abstract design the inspiration gained from observing nature and scientific discovery as a creative or destructive process. This work serves as a source of personal exploration and aims to express an interpretation of the world around me."
