Date of Degree
MFA (Master of Fine Arts)
I study art, and that is because I like to think about how it helps people learn. In particular I like to create insects as abstractions of nature to invite a different perspective on how the world works. I strive to create synergy through interdisciplinary projects so that people can learn through science, technology and art simultaneously. The point of intersection between these fields of study is where my work can be found. My artwork includes scientific photography of insect collections, 3-D scanning, rapid prototyping, molds and ceramic sculptures. All of these have specific processes and through them I have created abstractions of nature to invite a different perspective.
