Artist Statement

I am continually returning to symbols of rural vernacular architecture and methods of building restoration. This is a means of reconciling waning memories of my upbringing and concerns that my childhood environment may be, like those memories, fading. These symbols manifest through illustrative acts in dialogue with qualities inherent in a material. It's really about care-about how I want to save the things I love from changing and finding love in how things change.
