How would you describe your work?
While bearing traces of the original form, I deconstruct maps to create new geographies, suggesting the potential for a broader landscape.
What are you currently working on?
I just wrapped up a small, varied body of work for a show at Craftland.
Where do you find inspiration for your work?
I am inspired by geological and biological processes; patterns in nature, geometry, botany, and anatomy.
3 artists/designers you love and why! :
Adam Fowler: He creates intricately layered hand cut drawings.
