My work explores the basic gestures of line and form. The forms I create mimic the illusion of breath by the slow expanding and contracting of contouring lines, giving movement and life to a static object. My work has become an autobiographical expression of my interests and experience in natural history and religion. Drawing from these encounters and curiosities, I manifesting my own narratives. Through the construction of gesture and comparative anatomy, my intent is to explore and preserve universal transitional states of being.
