My recent work is made using both natural and common domestic materials that are formed into installations through a mundane daily activity such as walking, throwing objects, and drinking coffee. Each of these pieces is the result of an action or gesture creating various organic patterns formed by collecting, shaping and installing the work. In this way, life becomes a part of the work, and time spent in the studio is a way to explore my own fascination with nature and other living organisms.
