Our natural environment is a vast land that I explore, observe, and unify by translating found materials into figurative or abstract forms. Through painting, printmaking and sculpture, I combine these techniques to utilize the discarded. Within this consumer based society, planks of wood, paper, and metal are thrown out onto streets everyday. Instead of being a wasteful contributor, these materials trigger my inspiration to enhance and create beauty within it’s form.
