My work employs elemental forms, experimenting with perception, patterns, randomness, and natural processes. Inspired by landscapes around the world, I employ various watercolor and acrylic techniques to abstract a place’s complexity | simplicity and explore what it is we see, comprehend, and attach importance to, given the changes constantly transpiring.
