My work is informed by exploration of the natural realm and my urban environment. I reference physical transformation in natural phenomena, examine humanity's place in natural historical context, and note the marks we leave behind. My process considers the physicality and immediacy of materials, working intuitively and allowing for unanticipated outcomes. Taking shape over time, the work is built, in a balance between intention and surprise, order and chaos. Built up and sanded away using alkyd-suspended pigments, the resulting surface is an all-important element, revealing a history of materials and forces visible beneath the finished one.
