"Her bright abstract works come to life on the page, bringing with them senses of dense, forested jungles, swirling rivers, the laugh of a child." - Paige Ferro, Holter Museum of Art
"I hunt for a rapid instinctual affair of building a surface. I use size, distance, convergence, overlap, color value,
editing and even temperature to substantiate space and volume.
The apparition of letterforms is the result of an obsessive habit. I often thrash words into splinters for a more objective view.
I crave the manifestation of a perplexity for the chance to develop a fresh formula. This challenge can be the integration
of a new medium, scale, incongruous color or the threat of redundancy. Design principles and elements work their way
into a balance of encasement versus expansion, sunshine versus grit, and even grace versus mercilessness.
Though my work grows hastily, I cannot claim to hold the gaze of a cursory observer. Instead I challenge the viewer
to identify the sequence of my marks, reason through my choices, and sometimes even draw simple truths."
