Artist Statement

I make work in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and curatorial projects. I often work within a set of parameters; either the physical constraints of the material or self-imposed restrictions of the process I have developed. My practice examines humanity’s relationship to the natural world through the environments that we build, the objects we design, the systems we put in place around us, and the ways we perceive and interact with them.
