Cultural Influences: I have a passion for patterns, interlocking shapes, and the interaction of positive and negative space in design. I am influenced by architecture, textile design, embroidery and tapestry design, sacred geometry, and the visualization of mathematical equations and numeric patterns.
Artistic Influences: I admire the sophisticated, detailed style of artists like Jackson Pollock, Georges Seurat, Laurie Lipton and William Morris.
Work environment: I work primarily out of my studio in Noblesville, Ind. I enjoy collaborating with other fine artists and illustrators and art associations such as Indianapolis Arts Council, Fishers Arts Council, Hamilton County Artists’ Association, Nickel Plate Arts, and Carmel Arts and Design District.
Materials used: Typically heavyweight acrylic paper and illustration board, and professional-grade inks and pens, pencils and watercolor paint. Paper-cut artwork uses a standard X-acto craft knife.
