WHAT DO YOU SEE - 2022This immersive installation is a space for the viewer to come to terms with themselves. The work encourages individuality, intuition, and a moment to be seen. When experiencing this piece, you are both the spectator and the art in an ebb and flow of energy and power.

hanging on by a thread. a near death experience - 2021

Our bodies and soul rest on a fine line between life and death. There is nothing securing or promising that this fabric will stay afloat aside from three points of thread that are wrapped around a tack. The fabric is the body, representing the one thing keeping us on this Earth. The light represents what makes up a person: essence, energy, personality, and soul. The body captures the light and absorbs it entirely as the fabric moves with the breeze, reminding us how precious life is.
