Artist Statement

In my work, I use geometric forms to investigate patterns that reappear on micro, macro, and human levels. Freehand drawing is at the heart of my process—I build complex organic forms from basic linear connections and contort the shapes to mirror the natural processes of growth and change. This allows me to explore the rich diversity possible within larger networks, and how these systems can be represented visually. I am also interested in the presence of geometric patterns in sacred spaces throughout history and culture, and how they can be used to create similar spaces of heightened consciousness within the urban landscape. I have painted large-scale public works in cities around the world with an interest in activating the spiritually transformative properties of each space.

I have worked on public projects and education outreach with organizations including Living Walls: The City Speaks, Art Basel Miami Beach, Fountain Art Fair, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the City of Charleston, Emory University, the Asheville Mural Project, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and others.
