My artwork is multimedia in nature and includes works on canvas, constructions, and jewelry/wearable collage. Whether designing a landscape, composing a painting, or constructing a piece of jewelry, I strive to create “gardens for the mind": spaces for the mind to wander through.
My constructions juxtapose vibrant colors, contrasting textures, and rich materials into compositions that are lively, harmonious, and balanced. The goal is to elicit engagement, positive emotions and playful elegance.
