Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I am a multi-interdisciplinary artist based in Washington, D.C.. I utilize handmade paper, large-scale drawings, installations, animation, and interventions in order to explore themes of decay, fragility, turbulence and the ephemeral. My work is characterized by a high-contrast, textural, and monochromatic palette. I use repetitive and time-intensive processes — such as papermaking — as a means of documenting responses to change over time. My current practice explores casting paper as a way of preserving an imagined environment.
