Artist Statement

I am process driven and work within a conceptual framework influenced by haptic exploration of materials around me. Ideation comes through research: both formal and informal forays into my environment, my memories and contemporary culture.

Through line, shape and texture my work is a visual exploration of unseen structures at play such as mapping, hidden geometries, or patterns that create a sense of order underlying the apparent chaos. Tension between material characteristics and the rigidity of applied structures and processes creates the dialogue I seek to explore.
