Artist Statement

Using what is found around me in nature, I try to capture the calming but intermittent discomfort within a person. This is something that we, as a whole, can all relate to. By producing a beautiful image that is not the idealized definition of beauty, I strive to step beyond social constructs of popular imagery. The constant search for these environments reflects the identity that develops within them.  Ultimately, it is my goal to produce lasting impressions on the relationships between nature and how humans relate to being stripped down into comprehensive parts and beings.
