Being a maker, I feel compelled to create. I focus this energy into an art practice working with intuition, rhythm, and pattern. The practice is a meditation that allows me to slow down and translate this experience into a visual language. This energy sets a rhythm that informs my process of making things. The rhythm is realized through the various stages that I take a piece through as dictated by my materials, from painting, to deconstructing and re-assembling. I am driven by the challenge of creating a visual balance through the physicality of materials and ephemera of experience.
Physicality of creating works is as vital as the visual results that follow. There are multiple elements at play for each piece that I create. For example the works on human skin or Permanent Markings are not pre drawn and simply traced. Each piece has a guide or road map that sets the direction of the work. The process of creating these are done in the moment informed by the environment, the client and myself. Together we create the finished piece.
