In my work, I search for the point where opposite qualities meet, creating - for me - the perfect balance. To find this point, I play with contrasting ideas such as, man-made vs natural, geometric vs organic, hard vs smooth. I believe that it is in the moment when these opposing values converge that beauty emerges. These are the moments my work captures.

My forms begin as common shapes like circles, triangles and squares. I use a mixture of subtle and dramatic changes to redefine the curves and edges of these shapes. Undoing the perfect geometry of a piece is how I aim to create the beauty and balance.
