That age old question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” has stalwartly remained to be the same I gave in my original adolesant answer, “I want to be an artist!” Though I create art for myself, my intention is to arouse others inspiration using my knack for unedited imagination. A robust affection for utilizing exploratory techniques by way of whatever materials may be in my hands has developed over time. Methods include raw unorthodox applications of paint, poetry, printmaking, collage, drawing and sculpture. Current predilections involve public art, where a smorgasbord of materials are used to transform spaces by revealing layer-upon-layer of my unfiltered textural introspections. “Nesting” began with a project where I employed a traditional basket coiling technique to create 35 grapefruit sized nests out of rope and yarn. It was during this process that I thought to myself, “Wouldn't it be enjoyable to shrink down small enough to climb inside of one of these nests?” Upon seeing Reed Library’s - Art in the Library Student Art Completion I found an opportunity to turn my idea into actuality. The ending result is not only intended to be an enticing space but more importantly a place for individuals to slow down, get comfortable, and recoup the energy needed to get through the day.
