Subdued Intelligensia


Celebrating the subdued intelligence of nature with texture and color.

Beauty in the idea that you can always zoom the lense of life infinitely inward, and outward drives my creative force. As a young person, I found comfort in the repetitive circular pattern work in mandalas, and as I grow they continue to provide therapy. My work pushes more into exploratory regions as I delve into working with different mediums. I am inspired by performance visionaries like Björk and visual artists like Alfredo Arreguin. I listen to the melodic songwriter Jessica Pratt and the creationary musical talent Claudio Sanchez to receive jagged awe in high places while I work. This website is my intertidal place of inspiration as I bring life to pieces.  

Please enjoy my day-glo perspective.
