Artist Overview

Through the expressive use of color, the desire is to awaken and transcend the spoken word. Object begins the dialogue.
Informed by the fluxes of our social discourse and sensibility of the environment, a visual language is realized. The aesthetics of design, with the essences of the object provide the foundation in the form. Surface, material, and seriality enforce the physical object supporting the influences of its origin—through experience. Seemingly displaced from an industrial or urban environment, the object utilizes the language of
color. Hue provides a glimpse into each works individuality, comprised of synthetic and organic emotion.
