In working with pieces of nature I try to promote a deeper appreciation for the ornate intention found everywhere in our natural world. Many of my materials I have found & collected in various environments around California. Some are manipulated and others emphasize their unique natural form. The use of precious metals is utilized to signify the importance and consequence of the species that each piece represents.
I gain inspiration from life, land, and my advocacy to my connection to our environment. As our ever evolving world plummets to an impending doom I hold aim that we must stay conscious, politically and atmospherically.
Sprouted by these ideas, my work focuses on the transformation of our existence, what it feels like to be human in our current unnatural world and why you should give a shit.
