I'm an artist and an anthropologist. My visual art explores the confluence of nature, humanity, and built environments. My technique is grounded in classical Roman and Byzantine mosaic, and executed in contemporary castoffs from the twenty-first century construction industry. Most recently, I have been exploring the relationship between tile and mosaic, since the two words may be used interchangeably in design and construction circles. The visual artworks resulting from these explorations are aesthetically rich in pattern, texture, and depth. Conceptually, they synthesize polarities such as grid and expanse, rules and randomness, analysis and intuition.
