Artist Statement

Combining parts of different, though commonly recognized, natural and man-made structures, these works allude to multiple interpretations as they oscillate among biological, mechanical, and architectural imagery. The post humanistic discussion of where natural forms stop and mechanical structures start is visually explored through these fluctuating pluralistic interpretations.
