I see summer on the lake -- brightly colored ropes and straps and tents scattered across landscapes.
The honor and history - known and unknown - of the distress and clutter and debris we pass down and around eachother.
My dad's dark and damp garage: filled to the brim with rust and possibilities.
The things we keep and the things we throw away and how sometimes they look just the same.
I investigate how new associations can be built by rearranging, elevating, and recontextualizing the raw materials of our human world. I actively engage in the everyday. In my work, I explore my relationship to materials and color and how those are influenced by my personal history. This is how I feel present, by sharing how I see the world.
