I use my work as a means of exploring the intersections of seemingly opposing forces: order and chaos, nature and the artificial, success and failure. I typically work in layers, each layer informing and sometimes contradicting the next through juxtaposed images or mediums. 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 complete. I attempt a “zero waste” ethic in my work, always trying to find a new context for pieces that might not have been successful initially.
