A collection of recent explorations in drawing + mixed media. Working mainly in abstraction, I explore themes of beauty, patterns in nature and the boundaries of our physical/physiological environments through intuitive drawing and layered imagery. Decorative ornamentation, excess, redundancy and maximalist tendencies fill each work as I reflect on our contemporary culture. Play and process are essential to my work-I enjoy the spontaneity and unexpected opportunities that working in watermedia and expressive mark making provides. I constantly construct, build up, and deconstruct each piece, mapping a visual timeline of the battle between freedom and constraint.
