I search for balance between the contained systematic nature of form and its transition into unprincipled outcomes. By asserting boundaries and restrictions, I achieve a level of control while encouraging the unexpected. Through repetitive acts and iterative processes, I consider the properties of metal as a raw material. These inquiries result in jewelry, objects, and prints.
By inking and printing experimental metal surfaces, I create tactile works on paper that blur the boundaries between two- and three-dimensions. Drawing with metal lets me expand the vocabulary of mark-making, where metal surfaces become images and printed works appear palpable.
