My artistic practice is heavily based on the idea of connection, through material exploration and an intertwining of mediums and memorializations. At one end of my practice, painting and music serve largely as meditative mediums concerning dreams, nostalgia, and physical connection between bodies and spirits. At the other end, on the opposite side of the *connection* spectrum, I am curious about the digital conventions of connection and how I can disrupt the notions of the digital versus the physical space in art. Currently, I am interested in exploring the dissonance between textiles and internet art.
