Found objects around PDX. As still functioning items, I encouraged viewers to take one if needed.
Influenced by the living world, my goal is to contrast nature’s unequaled advances with the synthetic

I intend to illuminate organic, temporal processes that are often overlooked and acknowledge the
value inherent in nature. Through art, I endeavor

In order to maintain harmony with my environment,
I work primarily with found or discarded objects. Unlike newly made items, every used material has
a voice of its own: a history that has been collected through its existence. It is that history that compels
me to reconstruct the clutter around us in a new way.
