"I am inspired by ultramodern and minimalist styles, and intrigued by the idea that style can be substance. I produce patterns that work as vehicles for color. By combining shape, value and texture, my geometric designs juxtapose both structure and randomness, artifice and nature, and the mechanical with the organic." - DBH Artist Spires

"My t-shirt designs are a blend of pop-culture, film, video game aesthetics, and anything from cute to cut-throat in nature.
