I have always been drawn to explore how nature organically creates shapes and systems. Recently I have examined how people shape their environment with the presence of their body. I find beauty in accidents, abstraction and organic things. In my projects I explore these themes through various different ways; exploring natural patterns, human behavior and shapes created with our body.
