Artist Statement

Liquidity, transformation, and porous boundaries lead me to question the present-ness of experience. Following geological time, I create shapes that mimic core samples, architectural columns, and maps. By making rocks, fountains, islands, and clouds, I explore the enormity of the physical landscape while calling into question its foundations. Listening to and responding to the world around me strengthens my awareness of what it means to be a human moving through the world.
