Narrative content, decorative elements and thoughtful editing are dominant concerns in my studio practice. The landscape is a psychologically charged subject that offers a variety of interpretations in drawing. In ceramics I am particularly focused on organic shapes and decorative details which reflect specific content concerns and designate the uniqueness of each piece. My design work is about the clean and precise qualities of digital media. I enjoy working with branding and packaging design, because it promotes a constant stream of creative and challenging thinking. Whether more defined or intentionally ambiguous, I aim to create work that is thoughtfully edited and engages the viewer.
