“In my compositions I layer color and cropped pieces of patterns to create secondary images. At the same time, I am building secondary colors I am splitting the patterns into smaller facets. Each intersection is a story of syncretism. I want to show the relationships between the primary forms and the unpredictable beauty they create when combined”
