Four integral components comprise the foundation of my practice: materials, light, surface, and process.
I collect materials based on their visual and tactile appeal. It brings me great satisfaction—both aesthetically and philosophically—to repurpose things that would otherwise be discarded, illuminating their value and beauty.
Light is, perhaps, the ultimate media. Transcending material, the wonder of the unknown lives in its radiance and glow. In its shine and reflection, I celebrate the power of alchemy and the literal sparkle that can emerge after much trial and refinement.
Surface grounds the material plane. It is where patterns are revealed and where order can be made from chaos. Light extends its depth and texture.
Dedicated presence summarizes my process. By savoring the rituals of the everyday, being observant moment to moment, and honoring a commitment to discipline, humble and repetitive actions accumulate over time to create significance.
