Scratching the Surface

My body of work satisfies a personal impulse to decorate the world around me, particularly the aspects of it that are often viewed as exclusively utilitarian and pragmatic. Through the use of applied illustration, pattern and embellishment onto non-idealistic surfaces, I make an attempt to fuse the notions of function and beauty into one consistent entity. My illustrations juxtapose organic forms and subject matter drawn from the natural world onto practical facades such as maps, books and interior spaces. My goal is to create an atmosphere through these decorated objects and surfaces that feels both visually stimulating yet intentional to the viewer.
