“My greatest inspiration in MC Escher, and one of his quotes is, ‘we adore chaos because we love to produce order.’ I always related to that. I try to keep that in mind when making designs, kind of creating a puzzle as I’m solving it. I like using vibrant palettes to really catch attention and attract energy, coming up with distinctive bold imagery that attracts viewers to problem solve, and prompts passerby’s to pause as they move through their day.”
