Artist Statement

Creating art has become my way of categorizing thoughts and understanding the world in a visual form. I use photography to draw connections and create associations between shapes and ideas; I concentrate on line, textural patterns, shape, and contrast to form a visual language that is clean and direct.

Experimenting with hard and soft lines as well as with organic and inorganic patterns, allows me to express the associations that I see in the world in a visual way and create new layers of understanding. I take photographs to draw attention to the details of life that I value: the intimate moments, converging lines, and sunlit edges of the space around me.

I take the familiar and make it just abstract enough to yield a different perspective on reality, blurring the line between ugly and beautiful. I want to communicate about universal experience through patterns and context in a way that language cannot describe.
