Artist Statement:

I am most interested in how objects are situated our everyday spaces. My work is motivated by the drama of landscapes and waterways, urban and rural.
I experiment by transforming everyday materials, putting them into unexpected circumstances. Through photography, drawing, and sculptural installation my notions play upon the unpredictable juxtaposition of natural and synthetic matter.
