“We all move back and forth between public and private spaces. Rather than call attention to the origin or the destination, I pay attention to what is found along the way. I am compelled by the social mediation of landscape, and how desire and disregard are manifested in objects and spaces over time.

My work celebrates the things we pass by, often unnoticed, while moving about our day. I am interested in entropy as well as the growth that is its companion. Close observation of the patterns and structures in nature, as well as the rhythm of its seasonal cycles, is an enthusiasm and an influence. I see tenacity and resilience within these systems and feel deeply connected to them.”
