“I’ve always been fascinated by secrets and hidden things in nature. The prospect of finding dinosaur bones right under the ground we walk on or colorful crystals inside of what looks like an ordinary rock, intrigues me. I like to believe that the bland and everyday can have spectacular things hidden within, that the stray brown seed pod by the sidewalk might have brilliant colored seeds that shimmer, like pearls, inside.
To discover the unseen hidden beneath or within an object inspires me to share my imagination and fascination of ‘what could be’. I try to use these ideas in my work to create something that requires the viewer to invest in the piece to see what it has to offer, to reward curiosity, and to those unwilling to stop and look closely to explore and discover, they may never know.”
