I create drawings, sculpture and installations inspired by biology and natural systems, which combine natural forms and unpredictable processes with precise design elements. The design elements I use generate a conversation between the rhythms of my studio process and various natural processes. It is within this conversation that I find meaning in the work. Like a scientist, my work develops from a series of experiments, but the rules and precision of scientific processes are replaced by a playful and chaotic approach. This process-based approach to making stems from a love of experimentation with materials. As a result, my work typically expresses itself in series and multiples.
