“As long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by flags and patterns. How can a few patterns and shapes represent a whole nation? How can a simple design communicate important messages from ship to shore?

The works in this collection entitled, “Codes & Keys”, plays with symbols, patterns, and color in an attempt to create a new visual language. In this collection, I attempted to paraphrase existing symbols and make them my own. Playing with proportion and shape, I have created my own, new language.”

Take a look and ask yourself: What do these pieces say to you?
