My inspiration to create comes from my Catholic Orthodox Faith, family, nature, community, and current contemporary issues that inspire me. I value experimentation in my creative process. I engage with materials that ignite my imagination. Visions and fantasy play a role in my creative process. I collaborate with other artists and work with ideas on public art projects that positively effect people and communities. Additionally I use typography and graphic design elements in my work. I believe words are alive—imbued with thousands of years of meaning. Letters express their own kind of symbology and speak to every person uniquely.
