Artist Statement:
My artwork is very physical, combining elements of painting and sculpture that are embedded into very textured landscapes. My work has a focus on nature, and is inspired by cycles of growth and decay. I am influenced by deterioration, devastation, and renewal. These perpetual cycles are a natural process, and in my work I attempt to find beauty in these harrowing experiences. I look for balance from the unbalanced, control from chaos, and light from darkness. The layered history is integral to each piece, revealing and concealing what came before.
