ARTIST STATEMENT

I am fascinated by the worlds we live in inside of our minds, the places we morph, and create into fantastical quantum spaces - A constant theme in my work is exploring ways to connect the line work of earths geometry that exists throughout nature, architecture, human cells, and outer space and weave them into stories using light, paint, and found objects. I wish to present the invisible threads that exist in this world and show how they connect through all living things.
