Statement

I am intrigued with human nature, the ways in which we communicate and interact socially, and how we deal with and manage the fabric of our lives. Interwoven with errors, flaws, or awkwardness in human behavior this thematic pool never fails to draw me in and form the underlying common denominator of inspiration to my different bodies of work.
Materiality as visual aide in communicating a concept is where much of my passion lies. Experimenting with materials leads me to intriguing tactile surface structures and material combinations.
