Artist Statement
 

Repetitive patterns create an infinite feeling of progressive movement. When viewing a pattern from different perspectives, the evidence of how form grows can be observed.  I also like to break down forms into their basic elements to better understand how they are created and how many differing elements are involved. My work inspires function leading to interaction between user and object. My forms are an exploration of linear, curvilinear, planar or volumetric configurations. I also study transitional patterns that shift from small to large, from short to long, thick to thin or solid to transparent.

My works were inspired by repetitive patterns from both nature and manmade objects, driven by an exploration of forms in the creation of each piece. I'm focusing on experimentation with different types of repetition and progressions by using different woodworking technique, to create both functional and scluptural objects.
