Within a multidisciplinary practice of making screenprints, sculptures, and installations I create work that is both derived from experience and invention. I am extremely captivated by the simple act of looking and gather observations from my daily life. By combining these observations with imagined structures and images I aim to make work that references real spaces while still feeling unfamiliar.
