Architecture has always intrigued me. When we change the landscape in order to create a space that serves our needs, the collateral affect is rarely considered. What results is an ever-changing surrounding that combines new with old, pristine with decay, tangible with void. My work hopes to find moments of beauty within the contradictions we continually create around us.
