Artist Statement

A decision to work towards simplicity opens up a world of possibilities. Removing the distraction of color allows the focus to settle on form. Adding one shape to another becomes a dialogue, an imagined conversation. A relationship emerges, and something interesting can happen. In working with less I want to find an interesting line, areas of quiet, and contrast between restraint and surprise. An intuitive process of adding subtle shapes results in a visual design in the context of minimalism.
