Our surroundings don’t leave
us even when we walk away.

There has been so much worth letting go of in recent years, yet I still feel an atmospheric pull to try and tie the air back together and hold on to something grounding where I am. Consumed by various fears, distractions, and environmental losses, we are not only missing the subtle, comforting details around us, but left not knowing how to savor them. Through my work, I attempt to hold space for desired change.

As we redefine our sense of shared space and what it means to feel “at home”, I continue to consider how the shadows of thresholds we’ve passed through still shape our newly felt experience. Through constructed, mixed-media tensions, this work considers our allusive, shifting boundaries—both physical and personal. All colliding surfaces elicit a sense of touch, loss, and awe with nature and known space.
