I find myself seduced by the mysteries of life and death, forms in nature and the possibility of alternate realities. Losing myself in my many thoughts leads me to wonder about chances of further existence beyond what we know or supposedly what we understand as our material reality. The ancient knowledge attained by those before us is forever being decoded, revealing a past that narrates aspects of life that we can only imagine. The rich history embedded in the entities of our natural world, whether in the deep blue ocean or high in the mountains are hints of what could have been or what could be,

These mysteries become the fuel used to manifest forms that are unique to my imagination and in turn the development of forms that come alive by the touch of my hands. I want to evoke a sense of imagination in my viewers with the hope that they will have the opportunity to let go and become part of the lives of my creations.
