My creative practice is intuitive and process-driven, generated by the found ephemera of my daily experience. The process of collage lies at the foundation of everything I make. The emergent themes I tend to arrive at are rooted in architecture, landscape, memory and impermanence. I am interested in the psychological underpinnings within spatial forms and the built environment, and how the configuration of architectural elements can be shaped to personify one’s inner experience. There is a seemingly incessant drive to find grounding and placement in a widely untethered space, be it the concrete terrain beneath our feet or the visceral dwellings of the interior self.
