The objects and environments that I create are fueled by encounters with natural forces, both real and imagined. Inspired by these encounters, unique forms are generated through the manipulation of synthetic materials. These forms accumulate, en masse, to engulf the viewer in an experience that is simultaneously unsettling and serene. My intent is to remind one of their relationship and scale to the forces of nature.
