scholarship in 2021 and a travel scholarship from Iaspis to a Artist in Residence in Madrid, 2021.

“My art is about the things I wondering and thinking about. It starts with a small thought I wonder
about, but then I give myself the task of getting to the bottom with what it is I’m wanting to examine
and understand. It tends to land in different kinds of interpretetions of the investigations.”
