Artist StatementThrough painting, collage, and stop-motion animation, I am investigating ideas of change and transformation, and pursuing a balance between chaos and control. I am fixated by the spaces between opposites, and with wanting my paintings to be both spontaneous and intentional, exuberant and complex, and everything in between. Reconciling these differences to create something that is "both playful and profound" is what motivates me and inspires my work.
