Artist Statement 
Through the acts of observing, collecting, and exploring nature, I investigate the transformations of oneself. I am drawn to the moments that prompt change within each of our lives, and how these moments alter our perspective of the world. When I create, I am investigating different ways in which to alter a space while also mimicking various qualities of nature. Memory, place, and time are all bound together when fabricating who we are.
Through the exploration of the natural world, I am drawn towards capturing various aspects of the landscape. I photograph and draw the land, while also considering the small components that make up the larger picture. Along with this documentation of the land, I acquire other materials like leaves, seeds, and rocks. For me, the acquisition of the small materials functions in a similar way to that of the photograph, as I aspire to capture the moments spent in the natural world. These materials then come together to create a larger collection that serves as my own memory bank. It is through these places I’ve visited, over the span of time, that memories are created.

Our memories are composed of moments of hardship and triumph. Sometimes these moments impact us immediately, while certain situations may change our outlook gradually. Either way, we are experiencing change with the consideration of time. I explore time through the use and alteration of both inorganic and organic material. With an organic material such as wood, we can examine the crosscut of a tree trunk, and while counting its rings, remembering that it originated and grew from a seed. While a material like steel can be exposed to natural elements and, over time, eventually oxidize, leaving behind its own residual mark. Both materials are important examples of documented time and reflect the relationship that we have with nature.

Through the use of textures, scale, material, and color, I explore how the work is interacted with and the impression it leaves behind. As each viewer examines the work, I hope they take a moment to contemplate their place and impact within the natural world. here, now is a reminder that our surroundings will continue to change, and that we too, will change over time.
