Most of my days are filled with some kind of creative activity. Some days I'm in a serious mood and during these times I will attempt to uncover my innermost thoughts. Other days I might feel light as air and would prefer to make playful little things that make me smile. Luckily for me, these opposing sides seem to coexist in harmony, making life interesting while keeping me balanced.
Taking my thoughts and transforming them into tangible representations is like solving a puzzle - it connects the dots for me.

​​Everything about the creative process takes me to a place that feels simultaneously foreign yet most familiar.

​​Whether I'm working on a specific project or just playing around with new ideas, I am someone who needs to dig deep. My curious nature often leads me to search, to contemplate, to create. Is this place, this deeper place, where I really live? Who I really am? It is likely that my work reflects a combination of both the simple and the complex. I believe there is room for both.
