I have worked to combine the necessity to create and the desire to understand the unknown. Using various forms of media, I study my attraction to color, shape and materiality. Where verbal thoughts fall short, image takes over creating an own entity in the studio. The flow one finds themselves in reflect an inner dialog. After accumulating an abundance of extractions, one tends to restructure to find narrative. The moment the work is assembled, it is free from me and becomes something elusive. The physical symbolism is something I have made with my physical reach and becomes larger than me.
