My need to make art stems from my desire to understand and connect with the organic world we live in: both the fragility of all matter and nature’s ability for healing.

My current artwork concerns investigating improvisational approaches to the “fabric” of all life forms. I have always had a fascination with medical science (both mental and physical) and a desire to learn about the extraordinary complexities of being in this world.

My work is constructed by combining used and found materials to reflect a sense of the seemingly fleeting nature of life. I look for materials that I can transform into objects that represent life and mark time. By making things in a repetitive manner I am trying to connect to the continuous motion of breath and heartbeat and the constant attempt by all life to repair and regenerate.
