Artist Statement:

My interdisciplinary art practice is inspired by a deep interest in nature. I draw from personal experiences and extensive research to explore the dynamic relationships that exist between remote environmental systems. I strongly believe that everything is unified and balanced through the movement and flow of interacting forces. My work aims to highlight this delicate balance as I create unique interconnections through assemblages of organic and synthetic materials, while also considering the tensions created by technology and human agency. Sculpture, photography, film, and installation are the primary processes used to manipulate movement of materials as they mesh together creating potential for transformative change. Given the current environmental crisis, my research takes on added significance as it highlights the need for greater ecological awareness and balance.
