My work is deeply rooted in the interconnectedness of nature, and the beauty of natural fractals. I draw inspiration from the structural similarities found in various natural systems, such as the branching patterns of the human nervous system, river systems, and trees. I use sculpture as my medium to express my passion and invite viewers to contemplate the wonders of the natural world.”
