Our world has a wonderful and intriguing tension in the balance between stress and calm, joy and sadness, and organization and chaos. As a sentient being, I must steadily adapt and accommodate the changing world surrounding me. In doing so, I create a dance to a rhythm that changes with every bar of music heard only by my own ear. My process is a reflection of this integral dance and I visualize the rhythm in form. My work is the result of the integration of my life with my creativity. I maneuver through this creative labyrinth using multiple materials to build a textured and varied surface. This surface is developed to entice the viewer to experience actual textures and explore the possibilities of where the specific piece might lead them in their own personal interpretation.
