Je travaille à la fois comme peintre et sculpteur. Ma pratique s'est intéressé à l'exploration de modélisme et de répétition. Le travail s'est progressivement intéressé au processus, et la différence aléatoire dans l'uniformité.

Série d'œuvres sont créées par des combinaisons répétées d'éléments simples, avec des travaux récents se concentrent sur la répétition de blocs, de carrés et de cercles.

Les peintures sont réalisées à l'aide de pochoirs et simple carré cercle qui se répètent dans des combinaisons aléatoires. Les sculptures sont constitués de cubes en carton peintes qui sont attachés ensemble avec du fil permettant la construction de dispositifs sans limites.

La répétition conduit à l'imperfection inévitable que les systèmes tombent en panne, mais le spectateur est capable d'ignorer les irrégularités afin de visualiser l'intégralité de l'œuvre.
