“My learning process fuels my artistic process. The images I find along the way become source material. I like to think of them as specimens and I use entomology pins to install the collage pieces directly onto the wall. There, all the didactic imagery combines into a fantastical moment. In the future, I want to build worlds that seep off the wall and truly inhabit whatever space they are in.”
