I think in grids and enjoy order. Because of this, much of my work is centered around structures - squares, grids, blocks and towers - and occasional text and drawn images. When I begin creating, I am very organized as I map out my composition. The further into the process I get, the more expressive and intuitive my approach becomes. The imagery in my work is abstract and usually carries a narrative. I draw inspiration from a myriad places and experiences but often the drive to create is fueled by a present circumstance that I am mulling over in the depths of my psyche.
