Artist Statement:

"My work tends to bounce back and forth between a sterile, digital aesthetic and the

familiarity of more traditional practices. My process plays within the expansive range of digital technology and craft, creating a parallel between complex computer imagery and timeless forms of artistry through an obsessive craftsman like process. Precision and controlled accidents, obsessive manual repetition and multiplying glitches, are the results of a process that occasionally breaks down in execution to yield errors in the ‘code’. I appreciate both the speed and consistency of programmed technology as well as, the hand made with its tendencies for human error. The meditative, and at times, laborious progression allows for the development of twitches and errors within the complex and methodical system."
