My art-making practice is an exploration of the cultural identity of water, its historical dimensions, and our direct experience with it as a vital element. These artworks utilize water as both a subject and a medium, and take the form of site-specific installations, sculpture, and public art projects.

Water is integral to every part of our lives, from survival to spirituality, and is continually shaping and changing our civilization and environment. The multitude of relationships we have with this element and the array of meanings we derive from them is central to my explorations as an artist, and the connectivity of our beliefs and ideologies regarding water across cultures and throughout history is an ongoing inspiration.
