I am fascinated by the influence of time. Walking in the forest I see time, and the possibilities of it in the objects I find.
I see the ephemeral nature of life as a journey and feel the other possibilities of life so abundant in the woods surrounding me. I shape this idea in my figures and try to emphasize the extraordinarity of those common, fragile objects I encounter.
