In my current work, I create ink drawings, 3-D collages, and strata-cut animations that take inspiration from biomedical models, medical diagnostic imagery, and strata-cut claymation. Through these mediums, I aim to capture the sensations I feel in my body and transform them into visual representations using drawings and three-dimensional forms.”
