My work combines ideas about art, architecture and science. It is my hope that an interdisciplinary approach will articulate new ideas about form and space. I aspire to realize these projects in three dimensions in a variety of scales. People are key to this exploration by representing the figure abstractly through the lens of architecture. The scientific process of observation provides a methodology to generate topographical surfaces in two and three dimensions. I channel observations between form-based drawing and sculpture through an intuitive response to materials. I draw from the models, and model what I draw as an experimental and reciprocal approach that generates new shapes
by moving between mediums.
