I use the realms of emotion, personal experience, myth, science and philosophy to explore enigmatic areas of existence. Through multi-faceted process, the use of varied materials, repetition and installation, I begin to tap into what is intangible.
My process and interest in material lies in challenging norms by honing into its traits and shifting their outcome. I am part alchemist, working with the periodic table, to alter; part scientist, testing materials to push them to another level. It is successful when perception belies knowledge or vice versa. The materials I work with vary but ceramic, glass, paper, and new media have a tendency to establish themselves in my work.
Repetition and installation are other means by which I attempt to bridge the ephemeral with the visual. I seek to bridge the visible and invisible worlds while never fully exposing them - for without the unknown there is no room for the imagination.
