“I am continuously captivated by familiar and unfamiliar structures, objects, and shadows. From these interpretations comes the process of abstracting, disguising, and editing out the amount of recognizable representational information. I am interested in manipulating opposing themes in a composition, such as balance, levels of transparency, distribution of tension, and the elegance of a line contrary to one that is wavering and unsure. Although seemingly mundane to the typical passer by, these tiny moments ultimately become the focal point of my pieces.”
