"Focusing on how one creates visual thoughts, I examine the intersection that occurs between the objects and spaces we have encountered. The inherent fragmentation of our thoughts is intriguing because it is not always consciously understandable. I want to capture the spaces in-between a moment that feels real and a moment when those emotions have dissipated. I am attempting to create an archetypal image out of objects that resonate with me personally such as internal structure of a building and a net form. I use these objects as a trigger to explore my own relationship to people, places, and things. The transformation of the intangible thought into a concrete material such as a thread line or mark made on the surface is the result of my investigation."
