I am greatly influenced by the Japanese tradition called wabi-sabi, which is a murky state when things become blurry, vague or attenuate in quality. There is a beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. In this state life becomes modest and humble. I am drawn to the raw beauty of natural materials because these materials play a huge role in my work. I am very interested in how nature has a way of taking life from, and giving life back to, the earth. It symbolizes the universe being sacred and divine and represents the infinite nature of energy.
