Nature plays a predominant role in my work, work that is fundamentally informed by and is a direct response to an innate affinity humans have toward the natural world. Biophilia, a term coined by Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson, describes how “…humans evolved as creatures deeply enmeshed with the intricacies of nature.” The artwork I create interprets this concept through references to the landscape, fauna, and flora of the natural world.

 

Through installation and sculpture, I explore the unexpected forms and compositions nature is capable of revealing. My ideas develop in a tactile way, growing and coming into existence like a living thing; taking shape and filling space. My work occasionally possesses an obsessive quality in its construction —painstaking assemblages of multiple, individual parts that are combined to create a larger, complete image: an image made of images.
