2016 - 2023.jpg

A human fingerprint is a marker of our identity, just as a tree’s rings are a record of its particular life. The ring shape is recurring in my work, speaking to themes of existence and individuality. While my art investigates and celebrates the individual, it also juxtaposes concepts of unity and togetherness.


These latter ideas surface through my fabrication methods. Many small elements are amassed, each one unique and interesting on its own. Yet, when arranged together something larger and stronger is formed, each singular piece contributing to support the whole. 


My artmaking process emulates the meaning behind the work; I engage a community of individuals in the creation of each public art installation. Whether I am inviting the public to hands-on workshops or collaborating with a team of professionals, many people experience the evolution of each project, linking each participant to something bigger than themselves.


As the world we live in continues to become more divided, using my artwork to advocate for unity is increasingly a priority. Relatedly, our planet’s dire state is inspiring me to experiment more with recycled and left-over materials, beyond my typical repurposing of fallen trees. As I’ve begun designing pieces with more permanency, I’ve started working with steel and epoxy in addition to wood, and continue to investigate the durability of different materials.
