Landscape and nature act as important sources of inspiration throughout my work. I strive to reference a harmonious meditative visual experience. Along with the use of detritus often, either synthetic or organic or the mélange of the two, I attempt to transform the typically disregarded and commonplace materials into something less ordinary. I am drawn to the tactile process of assembling, collecting, giving new meaning to materials. The process of creating order out of chaos is a meditation and process that is deeply meaningful.

As often as possible, I strive to find a connection in my studio practice that is significant in conjunction to society, the individual, personal experiences, and like a narrator or a poet, through the use of collecting objects or images, like words, I assemble visual narratives.
