In my current body of work, I explore the idea of psychological landscapes through drawing and installation. Using primarily pen and ink or scratchboards, I use detailed line-work to play with shifting perspectives and to create hybridized natural forms. The sketches begin with patterns and textures I find in nature. Within the sketches, abstractions and atmospheres develop that knit together a world made of disparate places, textures, and forms that challenge the viewer by appearing simultaneously familiar and foreign.
