I create art that tells the untold stories. I listen as the past speaks through the objects I collect and now hold in my hands. I am fascinated by the history behind a long saved, but seemingly insignificant item: The meaning rarely lays on the surface, but is buried underneath. My artwork, too, contains messages hidden underneath. I am heavily influenced by opera, rap, searing voices, Theremins, a scrap of paper, a single word, the thick cotton of an old book page, random sentences, and an overheard statement. I am passionate about nature and create work to appear as affected by the natural world; worn down by the environment but in a much loved way.
