Everyday materials are often overlooked. Our familiarity with them desensitizes us to their visual and physical presence as they fade into the background of our lives. We forget that they are there and that they have a functional beauty. Seeking out and reinventing this beauty through the use of pattern and repetition is the guiding force behind my work. The process is like solving puzzles: you start with a series of simple pieces and transform them into a cohesive whole.
