“I’ve been a creator my whole life, but found my voice through paper as a medium. I love how approachable this medium is. It’s inexpensive, easy to manipulate, but with the right skill can create truly intricate and massive design. My work plays heavily on color, texture, and repetition. I think some of the most impressive art can be created from simple objects/techniques but multiplied hundredfold. I have a background in design, so I’m always looking to create larger installations that can transform a space and envelope the viewer.”
