Artist Statement

I use my work as a means of examining our complex relationship with the natural world around us. As humans, we at once treasure nature’s beauty, exploit its resources, and attempt to contain the elements we deem undesirable. I explore some of these contradictions through my creative process, which involves a mix of planning and serendipity, and my choice of medium, which juxtaposes my reliance on plastic-based acrylic paints with a “zero-waste” ethic of employing found and re-purposed materials.

I typically work in layers, each layer informing and sometimes contradicting the next. When I am struggling with a piece, I continue returning to it – sometimes with a new medium or concept – adding additional layers of information until it feels resolved.

Medium: Acrylic, Ink, Decoupage
