My artistic practice is a tool to process and attempt to understand the world around me utilizing repetitive action as a form of meditation. I have an academic background in philosophy and a professional background in journalism, and both of those influences are evident in my visual work. Pieces typically start as questions about or attempts to understand a place I’ve been or experience I’ve had. Image and text are then combined and layered into a visual meditation, and serve to catalogue the experience and whatever feelings it evoked without attempting to make any solid determination about what it meant.
