In my work I explore and represent the ways in which people interact with and are affected by others, their environment, nature, and everything that is human-built. Therefore, even though I primarily sculpt bodies, I am really looking into relations. I am fascinated by the dualities of life and death; growth and decay; and the human impulses to both create and to destroy. Through my sculptures, I aim to put the concept of humanity into conversation with various aspects of the world that we inhabit in order to learn more about what it means to be human.
