My sculptures take the viewer on a journey from the smallest elements of creation such as a seed under a microscope and into vast galaxies light years away. Formed by stretching an opaque fabric over a linear steel construction, my sculptures look like botanical drawings, flying kites or lit up celestial cloud formations that have come to life in three dimensions. I often weave ancient symbols from Alchemy and Mysticism onto the surface of the fabric. I do this as a means to strip away layers of the past- to reexamine patterns and structures that no longer serve, or even have the possibility to serve our present culture. My organic artworks highlight the glory and intricacy of the natural world and represent the power of growth and transformation.
