Artist Statement

As an artist, I examine and scrutinize the human environment, specifically the urban environment. My sculpture reveals the creative processes that occur within the city, drawing on both the connective and isolating aspects of public space. Inspired mostly by nighttime walks around Portland, my work uses found detritus and phenomenological investigations as conceptual points of departure.
