artist statement

Like solving puzzles, I set rules and follow them to their logical conclusion. Each drawing, painting or sculpture begins with the making of marks which are then codified into a sort of visual law. Only then, liberated through constraint and oriented by a graphic sensibility, am I guided through the execution of each piece.

A fascination with patterns, whether visible or invisible, is the common thread weaving through my professional experience in graphic design, fashion and art. My underlying preoccupation with structure and repetition – proof of order within a chaotic world – leads me to devise and then decode these riddles over and over again.
