Artist Statement

I have always been interested in natural systems. My work often reflects my interests in naturally occurring geometry and architecture created by insects.

Insects like bees, wasps, termites, and ants, particularly fascinate me. Their social functions and nest/hive building were what really caught my interest initially. I have often been surrounded by many of these insects in my time tending my vegetable garden. Being in contact with these interesting, complicated and necessary creatures is what made me start making sculptural work on organic architecture.
