Artist Statement

I have always been interested in the small parts that make up an elaborate design. My eyes fall to the details of material and texture while studying how they correlate and compliment each other.

I am a gatherer of information, so when I design I look at the wide variety of time periods, colors, textures, cultures, you name it. I find it most interesting when you can find harmony between two things that to the naked eye seem opposite but create a cohesive design that is rare and exciting.

I have always felt that the constantly changing environment around us can be an endless resource for bringing unique components to design.  I incorporate small details in my work to show meaningful and purposeful craft. I design with the intent that each creation is more than a trend, but something to invest in, as everything designed in this world should have a purpose.
