Over the past decade, I have become captivated with exploring ideas surrounding the existence of a parallel or “alt” universe, and finding a way to represent it visually. What if that alternative world wasn’t frightening, but instead place where color, nature, and our souls made sense in their own unique and curious way? As an artist who sees the process of creating art as non-linear, I find that I experience the past, present, and future lives of my work all simultaneously. These periods of time happen all at once, maybe not at all, and sometimes infinitely with no end in sight. I find everyday curiousness, the physical mementos (such as photographs & paper ephemera use in my work), and the history and images from past travels to be present every time I bring pen to paper.
