Artist Statement

My practice juxtaposes themes of playfulness, dark humor and concentrates with in a three dimensional realm. I’m transfixed by three dimensionality and taking up space either in an art object or as a performer. I like nature and animals and they like me. At least that is what I believe. I am in awe of nature and animals and want to be a part of their world and them a part of mine. I attribute this to being surrounded by nature and growing up around a variety of animals. Environmentalism underlines my artwork as I feel extremely connected to nature, as if animals are an intrinsic part of my identity.
