About

Using mainly pen and ink on paper, my art focuses on detail and patterns that are simultaneously meditative and design-oriented. Drawing intuitive yet constructed figures, I aim to blur the line between perfection and imperfection, symmetry and asymmetry, and design versus art. My patterns are based in aesthetic pleasure yet often symbolize a very personal concept or meaning. When I complete a drawing, it becomes a marker of a time in my life, much like a tattoo. I often incorporate the physical evidence of slight body modifications into a piece in order to commemorate the events that were taking place during its creation.
