From the artist's Statement of Purpose:

My earliest artistic experiences were among the displays and dioramas of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences. I find the complexity, balance and scope of scientific fields such as geology, evolutionary biology, physics and astronomy to be simultaneously compelling, beautiful and unsettling. I am fascinated by time and our subjective perception of the past, present and future. My explorations into these fields form the conceptual base that fuels my artistic practice.
