I was inspired to create unique types of sculptures using common materials and found objects. This new-found perspective into sculpting opened a door and allowed me a new way to travel- travel as art. In this way, travel and observation provided a simple way for me to explore relationships between culture, people, objects and space. This method is now reflected in my sculptures and installations- I can go anywhere, make art anywhere and with any material. I can simul- taneously fuel my imagination with experiences and create new designs related to what I find. My current projects are based on the concept to recreate the feelings of freedom and curiosity that I experience while traveling and transform them into abstract spaces. I make balloon installations using the most common materials I can find (currently plastic bags and tape) and use them to create installations that play with light, transparency, shape and color.
