ARTIST STATEMENT

“It is said that all life on earth is created from the matter of long-dead stars. Through my art, I strive to make quiet moments that represent the creative forces behind our universe. The shapes and patterns I see in my environment, as well as those too small or vast to see — mushrooms and mountains, crystals and clouds, sealife and forests, microbes, and cosmos — provide me with a constant source of inspiration. More specifically, I’m interested in using abstraction to create a purposeful space for multiple interpretations while also revealing a shared visual connection between these objects through reoccurring geometric motifs, custom hand-marbled designs, and even gold leaf details to reference the star stuff that permeates all life.“
