Artist Statement

I think of my abstract prints and circle paintings as a formal experiment grounded in pleasure and aesthetics. My approach allows for improvisation and surprises, similar to when I am recording music. I enjoy seeing how the different layers interact when combined together. As I make these pieces, the juxtaposed constellations of intended and accidental compositions and patterns are ultimately an exercise in the soothing quality of art: A reflection of the human tendency to find peace, or even beauty, both in the face of struggle, confusion, and pain and in our processes for living through them.
