In my work I am interested in exploring the limits of existing structures and systems of logic. I study grid patterns inherent within the natural world, painting, language, technology and textiles. I aim to disrupt these systems, pushing them to their comprehensible limits in an effort to create space for new visual and poetic possibilities. I work in-between painting, piecework, sculpture, installation and performance as a way to probe the boundaries of established forms of making.
