FROM THE ARTIST:
My work is a combination of curiosity, instinct, and an overwhelming desire to explore tonality, light, and movement through color. I love the complexities of color and mark-making. I think there is such playfulness between chaos and uniformity, and I am constantly working with both through the language of repetition and color.
I have been exploring natural imagery. Using environmental references, my most recent body of work plays with contrasting textural elements and color to expose the awesome diversity of the landscape. I think there is an incredibly interesting symbolism that occurs when images of nature are made - digitally or otherwise - through the unique and often distorted human lens.
