Artist StatementI am fascinated with the manipulation of a two-dimensional surface to create a dialogue with three-dimensional space. The qualities of form, depth, and materiality of painting, design, and drawing inform each of my prints. The intuitive process of immediate decisions and focus on reoccurring layers has become vital to the artwork. This allows the work to react to the space around it, achieving a sense of natural growth. The viewer’s own linear narrative is considered when creating the work, invoking the questions: “what and where art they looking into?” I encourage the ultimate experience of the work to be left in the viewer’s own hands, this can evoke and distort their interpretation of both the tangible space in which they inhabit or an abstract place they are searching for.
