About the Artist

My fascination with the way that small things can build up to create large things is one of the main factors that drives my art. This fascination is not only with the formal qualities of the art I make, but also with my own emotional experiences. When I am feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, there is rarely one big issue to blame. Instead, I can list many small things that have layered one upon another until their combined weight is too much for me to bear. In my drawings and other work, I explore literal building and layering in order to better understand how the figurative building and layering affects my emotional state.
