My practice relies heavily on play to define project structures and maintain momentum. My methodology originates in how I interacted with toys growing up. I was attracted to dollhouses, animal figurines, and building blocks. Organizing objects, setting stages, building forts, and exploring the natural world around me are the most important parts of my day, and dictating spaces in a way that is appealing and functional is necessary. The small worlds that I assume control over are proxy to the larger spaces that I psychologically project. Miniature worlds outfitted with detailed furnishings allow me to have complete control over more space than I actually have at human scale. Within this play structure, miniature objects allow me to imagine that I have the opportunity to build within spaces larger than any one person has access to. I design gardens, houses, and landscapes and move through them in my imagination.
