My work strives to capture visual movement through repetition and the inherent properties of my medium. The style in which I work stems from the spontaneity of my materials. I work through my ideas by executing them with the instinctive quality of allowing my materials to flow naturally. Using delicate yet rigid metal forms to create a framework that contrasts the smooth and transparent nature of clear glass creates a visual dichotomy that further allows movement to exist. There is also something very pure about using clear glass in a world filled with color. Reflections are captured in such a way that also capture movement of our surroundings, often magnifying little details we tend to overlook, and allowing us to see reflected colors in new ways.
