I make compositional works based on my fascination with the built environment and our human connection to the world through design. I gather inspiration from the fields of architecture, vessel and furniture making, and the built environment, and draw aesthetic and formal links between these vast and varied sources. By way of abstraction my work seeks to unify various nods toward design trends and craft traditions into a cohesive visual and contemplative experience.
As an observant wanderer and appreciator of design I am compelled by aesthetic and formal similarities across disciplines. I find the way a building rests on its foundation similar to how a table rests on a floor, or how a cup rests on that table. This imaginative and playful way of thinking has become the starting point to my creative process. The objects I make are loosely based on things in the world that may be tiny, life size, or massive. By shifting scale in an arrangement of multiple objects, my work aims to trigger the imagination. At the confluence of design, architecture and the built environment I find a directconnection to our shared human experience. My work is equally an homage to my love and fascination for the designed world and a conduit for finding a human connection to the objects that surround us.
