My work demonstrates the paradox between space and reality. I use landscape to symbolize growth through volatility, conveying beauty within desolation.
Using wood, paint, paper, and razor, I create, break apart and reconstruct until the pieces are de facto collages,  portraying how forces play with both internal and external realities.
While the media and patterns make up the skin of my constructions, the shapes aid in generating meaning and providing a formal platform, giving the images and symbols clarity and dimension.  The process of endless building and re-configuring, transcends the physical, and encompasses the symbolic. When I create, I take part in a reclamation.
