"Much of my practice is inspired by my love for man made structures that have been left behind by humanity. Nature reclaiming what is hers and the obscurity of times past is something that has always fascinated me and helped rig my imagination to create. My narratives are inspired by memory, identity, and the spaces I create in. I appreciate texture and find the intricate details of substances typically seen as hazard or filth impossibly beautiful and enthralling. With paint I strive to create the same sort of 'nature made' essence. "
