In Western society today, we struggle to create beauty and meaning through superficial means. Simultaneously, we move at a radical pace which overlooks the present beauty of our lives and the world around us. I have found myself guilty of falling into societal norms and have realized the stressed, rushed, unsettled life these behaviors elicit.
I am striving to slow down and allow the effortless beauty of our natural world to impact me. By using nature as my starting point, I am recreating, fragmenting and abstracting to give viewers a fresh perspective, often leaving them curious about the origins of each piece. My most recent works play with the mixing and juxtaposition of natural and manufactured elements.
My work will be a catalyst that will inspire others to stop, look and be amazed by the intricacy and natural beauty of the world around us.
