Statement:
A fascination with simple, improvisational constructions and architecture, such as scaffolding and fences, has led me to experiment with structures and materials emphasizing linear arrangments. To me, it is like drawing without paper–an exploration of possibilities in physical, three-dimensional linear circumstances.
