Artist Statement:

I love to make up new worlds. Creatures, human figures, plant life, machines, etc. Sometimes it is purely about making a beautiful mark or shape, a simple pattern with a pleasing rhythm. My work always emerges as a surprise to me and everything I do is made up organically as I go along. I love the dreamlike feeling I get from working this way. This subconscious, meditative approach to making work keeps me curious and flexible in the studio. Everyday there are new discoveries.
