Light surrounds us – peripheral yet integral to our vision.
Glass is my lens to explore the complexity of the natural world. Exploring first with the camera and then with the material I use glass as a surface for translating light, creating landscapes both real and imagined, internal and external.
By immersing myself in nature I seek to find a retreat – a shelter from the day to day of human existence, placing me within an environment that is both foreign but completely natural. How far removed am I from this natural environment – how far removed am I from my own spirituality.
By examining the sublime qualities within nature I seek to find answers that lay in a landscape both foreign but intimate to myself.
