At the core of my art practice I look at what it means to be human, and I attach humans to one another across diverse backgrounds of class, ethnicity, and life circumstance through simple gestures of art. I build collaborations with people experiencing homelessness, real-estate developers, botanists, grocers, highest level government officials and students; and often through the lens of ecology, where my attention has been drawn to the study of stress-tolerant and overlooked plant species that live in micro-environments. I am interested in looking closely and paying attention to what is small and omnipresent and overlooked, while drawing parallels between the natural world and the most fundamental aspects of human presence.
