Artist Statement: Whimsical, playful, colorful and graphic might be words used to describe my work. I love to use pattern and intense color to animate the work and create a sense of whimsy. As an artist I create in several mediums: watercolor on paper, clay and metal. As an architect and interior designer I use various building materials to articulate my ideas. Each medium informs the other and allows for expansion. The journey informs the creative process and enhances intuition. My goal is to create inspired results.
I view the world through my own filter and I try to convey my unique perspective in my work. The content of the work is varied, but much of the work is inspired by nature and my travels to unique and exotic places. Some of the work is inspired by food and my work in restaurant design. Much of the work relates to my travels in China, South America, New Zealand and many wonderful locations throughout the west. Many artists have a desire to connect with nature through their artwork. My goal is to develop a stronger personal connection to nature through my work and develop an understanding of the specialness of a place through the experience of creating the work.
