There is a stubborn and shameful tendency to use life’s responsibilities and entrenched traditions as excuses to suppress unique viewpoints and innovative ways of perceiving the world. But it is within bold, raw creativity that we can set our spirits free from the banality of the everyday and step out of ourselves to appreciate fantastic wonder. The vivid colors and eccentric patterns of my art seek to do precisely that by abstracting non-representational forms and shapes into wistful parallel universes begging to be explored. The painstaking level of detail in my work unearths new revelations with each viewing. Rather than stem from a deep dark place, my artwork originates from a quirky and optimistic choice to regard the world as vibrant, detailed, and gorgeous. I want viewers to understand that the world is not merely a banal and depressing place, but a complex labyrinth of beauty ready to inspire.
