2D Mixed Media
Hoover, AL

I am drawn to contrasts—nature’s beauty and its weirdness; natural and manufactured forms; the use of old things to create something new. Even simple contrasts in color and texture can hold beauty and meaning. In my art, I strive to evoke feelings that arise from the quiet tension between contrasting elements and ideas.
