“My work serves to physically commemorate and celebrate ideas, thoughts, words, instincts, feelings, passions, actions, secrets, fears, loves, hates, unknowns, curiosities, wonderments, knowledge, stupidities, explorations, events, emotions, places, spaces, and things that are drawn in my mind and stick long enough to share with you.”

“The imagery I work with is born out of exploring and researching fictional places imagined in my mind. (…) These “places” express the uncharted depths of our creative mind and depict a dream-state unreachable in realtime. By making objects, these thoughts and ideas are commemorated and celebrated physically in space. The audience in turn, can disassemble each image or object, associating an aspect or quality with a known place or thing. Ultimately, my work exists as an effort to visually explain an emotional state of mind with mathematical acuteness.” (quotes from Little Paper Planes)
