My artwork is informed by the shifting and temporal nature of my surroundings and the traces that are left as time passes. Specifically, I am interested in moments and sensations that are not fully understood because they are so fleetingly glimpsed or experienced.

I explore these ephemeral qualities in pieces that remove the borders between painting, drawing, and sculpture to offer different perspectives on experience. I am especially curious about how the nuances of material touch can act as a point of exchange between the artist and the viewer to alter the perception of an artwork.

I consider each work to be a small piece of a memory. Similar to the process of remembering, within the experience of the artwork each form, mark, or color comes to the foreground to exist briefly before dissolving. Each painted mark or folded crease suggests an action that has already occurred, whose memory lingers in its residue.
