My work is a conversation with duality, good v. evil and light v. dark, and my struggle to find balance. It is inspired by romanticism. Each piece draws from my intense emotions of sadness, bliss, isolation, and desire in an attempt to connect with a world in which I see myself as a distant observer.
In Photography, Ceramics, and Digital Media my work explores technology to create interactive pieces that immerse themselves into environments, creating engaging experiences. Digital technology can enhance the craftsmanship of classical art forms without replacing it; have both definitive elegance and strengths. My work combines classical art forms with new technology producing a unique experience.
