I grew up making artwork my whole life. Having an artist for a father can have that effect. In my college years I got both my bachelor's and master's in architecture which further enhanced my artistic abilities and added another layer of reasoning and functionality to my work. Through college I was also able to add other skills to my artistic repertoire, taking oil painting and glass blowing alongside my architecture classes. I use many different mediums, including: paper, watercolor, clay (ceramic), wood, photography, glass, wool (felt), dyes, oil paint, and metal. Using these different mediums allows me to choose the best one for the project I'm working on. If I think there's a better medium or method I haven't tried yet, I'm always up for learning something new!
I have always been fascinated with materiality, resulting in my artistic exploration of various materials, using them to explore texture, color, and perspective. I combine large numbers of smaller often simple elements into multi-faceted compositions, gaining complexity and space from their combination.
