About:

○ Every time I approach a new piece, it is with the excitement and curiosity of not knowing what will be produced. The only assured outcome is that there will be an echo of colour on the canvas, either implemented by me, or by the snow’s slow transformation into water. After practicing and experimenting with the natural melting process I have learned to utilize snow and work harmoniously with it, helping it to employ brighter colour and to direct the flow of a piece. At the same time, snow has taught me about organic alchemy and its possibilities. Texture, flow and colour all have potential to make a piece beautiful, but these elements only manifest when I collaborate and interact with the natural processes I’m given to work with.
○ My work is composed of a two-step modus operandi wherein I build the infrastructure, and snow develops the final aesthetic. I often sculpt the snow into different formations before applying the paint. Although a true explanation of what this does is still a mystery to me, it is the intention behind my hand that allows perception to recognize the individuality of each piece.
○ To work in union with natural processes of the planet is to celebrate ones place in the grand design of the universe. By combining my own movement with that of gravity, ice crystal, and liquid I wish to convey a deeper connection and appreciation for the primordial progression that has existed on Earth beyond the timeline of the conscious being.
