Artist Statement

Patterns are a ubiquitous aspect of our universe. They can emerge from chaos or from perfect math, and anywhere in between. A beehive, a galaxy, a turtle shell, an atom, a mold spore - I am fascinated with and influenced by all.

My drawing process is guided by inconsistency and imperfection, the very things that make me human. In order to develop a deeper understanding of my surroundings, I strive to mimic those patterns that I find so mystifying. I begin by emulating a specific pattern or concept, employing a system of deliberate markmaking that celebrates, and is often guided by, the prospect of chance.
