After years of compartmentalizing the different parts of my creative life, I’ve decided to try bringing them together to better see the overlaps between my different interests and aesthetic inclinations, how they play off of each other, complement each other, or inspire new ideas. Wavy Matter is a new experiment that holds disparate parts of my creative output and process, and presents it to you in a way that is hopefully genuine and meaningful as a way to communicate my vision and values.

I am ruled by my obsession with textiles, my love of print-making, and my desire to connect with people through art and design. These are the passions that catch my eyes and consume my thoughts, and have kept me coming back to the studio through all of my professional life. Through it all there has been so much inspiration and so much amazing work all around me; I want to share some of that too.

Wavy Matter is a social enterprise with B Corporation standards. That means that I am formalizing my commitment to put people, environment and ethical practices first in all aspects of my professional and creative life. Wavy Matter works with local and independent small busineses as much as possible, prioritizing non-toxic, fair-trade and ecological materials and products every step of the way.

It is important to me to give back, grow community, and promote social change. As part of this endeavor, a percent of profits from each sale at wavymatter.com is donated to fund public and socially-engaged art. Together we can create more sites of inquiry, creativity, and beauty in the world. Thanks for being a part of it all, and welcome
