Artist Statement

I begin by attending to my surroundings, looking and listening for interesting forms and phenomena both organic and artificial. I feel myself slip into a dream-like state in which curiosity and creativity become instinctual. My work reflects the transition between conscious and subconscious states, investigating the tension between the natural and manmade. I use elementary building materials and repetition, combined with hand-crafted objects, to create minimal abstract forms and installations that reframe space, invite investigation and immersion.
