This body of work is inspired by my passion for construction cranes and an ongoing interest in nature, home, and the decorative. The work draws on my immediate landscape, making connections between these internal and external environments. Absent of human presence, there is an emphasis on the structures’ interaction with the domestic patterns and botanicals. Their entwinement and where they intersect- contrasting colorful, textural organic patterns, with the intricate geometric lines of the cranes. I see it as a balancing of familiar opposites: feminine with masculine, strong with fragile, industrial with organic.

I am creating a space within my aesthetic, where these elements can combine to create an entirely new landscape of pattern, shape, and color.
