I aspire to uncover the universality of the human experience through my creation, and to use my work as an empathetic device. I consider relationships between individuals, between societies, and between the natural world and mankind as I seek to represent macrocosmic connectivity within comparably microcosmic art.
Many of my pieces represent a specific moment or object within a particular realm, a sort of alternate reality, that I believe exists in a subconscious space disconnected from time or materiality. My access to this realm is dictated by memories, emotions, and sensory experiences which I translate into tangible media in the hopes of increasing its accessibility to others. At this point, my work is very explorative and curious in nature, but my ultimate goal is to bring about introspection and psychological healing through the recognition of our shared pain, volatility, and resilience as living beings.
My choice of material depends largely upon each project's personality and purpose. My fluency in drawing and painting provide a foundation for my current exploration of sculpture, installation, and mixed media. In a parallel but decidedly separate realm, I am developing my literary skills with the intention of incorporating it into my life's work. In In most instances, a project begins with an idea and evolves intuitively.
I hope to expand my familiarity with the world and myself while participating in collaboration with a wider range of unique personalities.
