Artistic Statement

Working across disciplines, my work engages conversations about material culture, the built environment and spaces in transition. Working with the Patch Project, I am interested in producing large-scale site-specific installations that respond to local symbols, architecture and histories. I am interested in producing work that is both spectacular and conceptually rich – important for public art that is accessible to broad audiences.
