I want to make pictures that let me feel massively enveloping, as if I could be the embodiment of silent sky. As my work begins with my observation and consideration of sky and space, I’ve developed a great sense of parallel between my states of feeling and conditions of the atmosphere. My work strives to embody these conditions of emotion bonded to atmospheric spectacle in tangible and intimate forms.

To achieve this, I use a variety of media, seeking surfaces and textures that can recall those of other-planetary crusts or a murky blackness of deep space. Using such materials as slick plaster, scarred carbon paper, polished bronze, and charcoal, I work to mimic characteristics of soft light, expanses of foreign topography, and palpable atmosphere while being careful to maintain a delicate quality of material. Through the making of my art, I want to translate my field of vision into a field of touch, so that points of light in a night sky may become embossed or pierced points on paper, therefore allowing me a chance to hold in my hands the ethereal things I watch. My works are often small and quiet in nature but I hope for them to feel vast and ephemeral though simultaneously held inside one's own body.
