Artist biography

I feel as if I always come back to these three themes: nature, movement, and design. Things that are ever-present, ever-changing, and reflective of individuality. For nature, my work often refers to plants and animals, of the effect of growing and of being wild. But I also use nature in reference to raw instincts of passion or purpose, of who you are and what you are driven to do. As for movement, I want my works to capture a sense of energy and be active participants in their environment. I don’t want my paintings to be static, either in physical composition or conceptual abstract. I also love working with colour, form, and texture, and in making different elements work together in contrast and harmony. I love juxtaposing ideas or conventions and playing with space and pattern. I hope to capture an essence of evolution and translate these stories and ideas into three-dimensional or painted forms.
