Artist Statement

My deeply rooted passion for art and design is inspired by the divine proportion found in nature. As a graphic designer and artist living in Sonoma County, I am pointedly conscientious of my surroundings. While walking, I see the same landscapes from paths my feet have ambled along time and time again, but I attempt to view what’s before me from a different perspective.

Observing a setting with deliberate intent to consider another viewpoint pushes me to get creative, see new details. Fascinating tactile and visual textures emerge which inform my process of layering papers and tinkering with composition and color choice. The resulting patterns, shapes, textures, and colors all reflect emotions and feelings drawn from my surroundings.
