My illustrative and sculptural work is primarily focused on the vibrations of line and explorations of our universe and beyond.
I sculpt using toothpicks on a very large scale using sacred geometry, orbital planetary paths and sound colours as templates. As a Synesthete, I see sounds as colours and shapes and use this ability to help give my sculptures structure, pattern and form. My sculptures are mini universes that emit their own light and are meant to be suspended from above so their internal lights cast expansive shadows that alter the environment they hang in.
My illustrations are explorations of universes beyond the reach of my sculptures and an extension of my imagination into understanding gravity, planetary systems, parallel universes and the passage of Time. I’m intrigued by repetitive patterns in nature and feel that I have to further explore the Fibonacci Sequence and the Phyllotaxis pattern within both my illustrative and sculptural work to gain better understanding.
Both my sculptures and illustrations emit their own light either with LED lights, or phosphorescent and UV sensitive pigments. It’s my objective to have the mediums of light and shadow as much a part of my palette as ink, paper, toothpicks and hot glue. For this reason, my work “charges” itself during the day and during the use of its LED lights until the lights are shut off and then it glows in the most wonderful and magical way thus creating the universe’s I’m striving emulate!
