My artistic practice serves as a compass to frame concepts of primordial memory, longing, and consciousness, through the lens of nature. I examine discussions centered on societal healing, language, plant technology, and identity to inform my research and use these theories as my explorative foundations of the “Urban Shaman,” within contemporary culture.

 

I take an interdisciplinary approach towards my work and move fluidly through drawing, writing, sculpture, performative gestures and site-responsive installation to activate my practice. Within these mediums, I incorporate herbal spiritualism, ethnobotany, dream language, and radionics to expand traditional applications of art. These tools are a means to broaden the audience's role in creating new realities, and to address their responsibility towards physical sites.
