Artist Statement:
Inspired by the cosmos and experimenting with recycled materials (plastic foil, video tape, transparent packing tape, synthetic yarn), I create work that focuses on form, texture, and light, I hope to bring attention to the need to protect the environment and increase self-consciousness regarding our responsibility for environmental waste
