All things, histories, and particles are connected and pulsing. This is my inspiration.

Through art I aim to bring more knowledge and beauty to my communities in meaningful, transformative and playful ways. I collaborate with a wide range of materials and modes to achieve these goals. Beyond traditional sculptural mediums I may use the growth of plants, digital communications or bike parts. In essence I work with materials that are accessible and available. Materials that can change and grow, respond and invite us to reenvision our spirited world are especially interesting to me. I choose them to encourage us and to communicate the possibilities of change.
