PROCESS

"I have been working with resin ever since I was introduced to it in a scultpure class in my foundation years in college. My process has evolved as I have understood more about the dynamics of the material. My most recent work focuses on the singular beauty of the initial pour, pairing down the process to a single minimal act. Inspiration comes from my everyday enviroment and the nature of the materials I use".
