Artist's Statement:
My approach to any work is a celebration of the visual tension that I can create through dyeing, coloring or manipulation of the material. I endeavor to visually excite the viewer, and provoke them to expand their concepts of a traditional medium. This manipulation of materials is only the beginning of the playful approach that I have towards my work. I strive to imbue each piece with the emotional composition of nature; to keep developing, renewing and growing.
