"My work centers around experiences in nature and how those experiences reflect on the human psyche. This includes responses to my personal experiences in the outdoors. My work is designed to make the viewer analyze the primal emotions of serenity and fear that encapsulate the human mind while experiencing the natural world. My goal is for the observer to be humbled by the creative and destructive duality seen within nature. I hope to give the viewer a deeper sense of the introspection that can be felt while in the outdoors."
