“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.
If you watch closely, history does nothing but repeat itself.
What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can't decipher. What we can't understand we call nonsense. ”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor
I am a multi-faceted artist, exploring various mediums such as painting, photography, sculpture, light, video, textiles, and unconventional materials like cassettes. My creative journey revolves around my fascination with natural patterns, textures, the lush PNW nature, music, and the joy of exploration and play.
Immersed in the creative process, I embrace whimsy and invite playfulness to infuse my artworks.
With music as my muse, I let the patterns of the elements synchronously dance with the melodies in my ears. I manipulate the natural patterns of existence, weaving intricate layers of life's design, an endless interplay of patterns within patterns within patterns.
Above all, my art seeks to encapsulate and transmit the profound happiness that arises from working with the ethereal elements of light, color, and nature, enveloping the viewer in pure joy and wonder.
In the present epoch, my artistic endeavors span across painting, video mapping, and sculptural light exhibits. My mind revels in the delight of multitasking, finding solace in creating multiple pieces simultaneously. Lately, my focus has gravitated towards the interconnectivity of patterns, delving into the emotions that arise from severed connections and the profound significance of personal bonds, often overlooked in our lives.

I have 15 years of experience curating arts of all mediums, producing vibrant art festivals, facilitating eccentric workshops, and designing captivating public arts programming. I also excel in creating whimsical calls for arts, meticulously managing budgets and finances in relation to arts and events, and implementing unconventional nonprofit fundraising strategies through the arts and gallery management. On top of that, I possess over 10 years of expertise in graphic design, marketing, social media management, and crafting outlandishly creative campaigns for events, programs, and festivals.
Also, I may or may not have a secret hobby of juggling marshmallows while tap dancing in to techno... Just kidding... maybe.
