ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I create my work with an intention to gain and transmit a deeper understanding of life on Earth. Through the study and reinterpretation of forms and relationships I find in nature, my detail-oriented process serves as a meditation on small things that comprise the delicate balance of life as we know it. Though my work is about something more universal, I pull from imagery that I feel a personal connection to, based on either my own experiences or things I have learned about from books and documentaries about nature. As I collect new imagery and ideas over time, I gain more freedom to play with the connections I observe. I work to do justice to the beauty of what I observe, in order to communicate the value of these fragile parts of our complex system.
