My studio practice merges research with fabrication to create a merging point of discourse and visual language. In the past year and a half, I have focused on work that reflects my desire to return to a reminiscent topographic. Longing for walks in a landscape that expresses its history through geological transitions, I seek ecosystems in Chicago's concrete jungle.
As a writer and fabricator, I find there is a constant tension between time spent researching and time spent creating. Walking has become a primary tool for navigating between the two by retracing ideas while walking to and from the studio. Other mediums I use in my studio practice are Photography, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Artist Books.
