Media: Drawing, mixed-media installation

Artist statement: My work uses natural phenomenon such as light, magnetism, and gravity to explore perception and the construction of meaning. By creating a relationship between the visible and the invisible, I explore the boundary between the known and the unknown.
I am interested in the way we use visual systems such as scientific drawings to understand and explain invisible forces. My work draws on this need to explain, on the ways we negotiate the mixture of anxiety and wonder we feel as we attempt to make sense of the world around us.
