Making art is a way for me to delve into subjects that intrigue me and try to find connections between seemingly disparate ideas and images. I have recently explored subjects ranging from psychological testing, poetry, historic textiles, islamic architecture, and the urban landscape. I also love to investigate different materials and see how they react/interact. The fusion of these interests is what keeps me excited to be in the studio–to see what unexpected alchemy may result.
