My practice is a multidisciplinary research practice studying how experiences in the material world can be a portal to our understanding of the immaterial world. While working, I balance intuition with analytical thinking to uncover and learn from visual, tactile, experiential, and theoretical metaphors. My philosophy in this work is to learn to balance dualities such as intuition and analysis, work and play, and structure and flow, so that two elements that may be thought to exist in tension can begin to be perceived, and utilized, as a harmonious relationship.
My research has led me to believe that my priority lies in developing creative practice methods that facilitate a deeper knowing of oneself and their environment. It is in many ways a process of de-conditioning an individual from the constructs that have been picked up over time that do not serve that person, while also reconnecting with the learning and structures that do. My creative practice serves to do this for my own individual needs and creative being and my hope is that the output touches universal truths that may be of interest to, or inspiration, for others. I share my work so that people can gain a tangible understanding of this process. I collaborate with individuals and communities to assist in helping others find their flow within these structures. The goal of this work is to change ones’ perception on their creative practice so that they can access their authentic creative self. If we can achieve this, we are closer to our full potential of healthy body and mind. What we may not be able to understand through thinking we can discover as we strengthen our connections between our mind, body, and eyes.
