I like to describe my work as playing in the woods while looking through a fine art lens. My art practice focuses on reflecting the beauty of nature as well as the human experience. This is mainly represented through my abstract two-dimensional mixed media pieces and temporary installations. My work is balanced by man-made objects and natural objects to symbolize the duality of the natural world and the human world. Growing up in a small, rural town has given me a profound appreciation of nature, and how it can protect, but also wreak havoc. I feel like humans have the same tendencies, and I show that parallel through my work. The materials I work with are rocks, leaves, branches, wine, dirt, fire, coffee, canvas, and thread. I believe that these materials allow my art to evoke humanness and genuinity.
