From the Artist

I create art as a way to interpret the underlying systems in history, language, and nature. I find motivation in fossil collections, mycology, folklore, natural history museums, terrariums, esoteric traditions, entomology, and sea monsters. I love complex overlapping stories and visuals. My process involves using high detail to dive into a subject fully.
