"I utilize organic forms and lines, in conjunction with bright and pastel colors to create objects and environments that blur the lines between artifice and reality. Biotic structures appear manufactured due to their glossy surfaces and playful color palettes, creating a sense of preternatural whimsy. The work raises questions about our limited knowledge of all the wonders that exist within the natural world. Could these objects exist in our reality, or do they belong to a realm of their own? My intention is to create objects that spark intrigue, and evoke moments of presence, immersion and curiosity about the seemingly unknowable."
