What is our relationship to the built and unbuilt environment?
What are the systems, structures, rules and regulations which emerge from those spaces?
I work with materials in an open exploration to connect to the physical world and to engage and expand on the systematic ways of creation in the studio. It is a labor intensive, repetitious process.
My practice ranges from material explorations to investigations in the use of space and light and takes on themes from the natural world and built environment. These explorations often come out of the studio as installations, sculptures, drawings, and videos.
