My work is a personal reflection on transformation. I use a number of basic design principles and consider how the process, as well as visual aspects of each piece, connect to this theme. There are literal modifications, as well as symbolic representation. I will allow accidents to occur and then adjust to bring it together. I gravitate towards the imperfections and contradictions. Such choices reflect my past challenges, acceptance of fear, and how I can manage these obstacles. The idea of transformation means a variety of things to me, such as hope and possibility. I am influenced greatly by music and other types of performing arts. Jazz music, for instance, is made up of structure and improvisations. There is a balance of planned application and instinctive execution. With this in mind, I am drawn to subtle characteristics and how they interact with one another. The manner in which both similar and opposing forces can find a shared path together drives my choices.
