“My work is about flow: the interconnectedness and dynamism of nature and our part within it, as well as the concept of time as a living thing - the past turning into the present and the future. I find inspiration in liminal zones, natural dynamic systems, and the interaction of the human mind with the senses in acts of perception: places, events, and experiences in ceaseless process of becoming.”
