My work is about current issues: health, human social condition, ecology, political strife, and the intersectionality between these issues.
Utilizing the power of common objects, I try to tell stories that connect these current issues to a more personal narrative.
I translate my responses: thoughts, emotions, sensations, and memories into the workspace and affix themselves around the concepts. My work is about empathy.
By using materials such as discarded toys, dolls, fake plants, and other found objects, I intertwine experiential concepts with formal concepts that make the pieces uniquely themselves.
Line, spacial relationships, design, and the physicality of materials endlessly captivate me. The work creates both a narrative and a space to pause and observe.
Through these accumulations of discrete ideas, I endeavor to create something larger, more ambiguous, and more paradoxical than their constituent parts.
