My work explores spaces in between and within. The imagery in my work focuses on the natural ecosystems within urban environments. I am interested in portraying the visual contours between tree branches and roots and using colors from transitions in time like Dawn or Dusk. I use unconventional materials, such as paper from used teabags or discarded wood, to bring content to my work about habitual moments, the impact of those items on the environment, and connect shared experiences within a community.
