Growing up in rural Indiana I was exposed to abandoned farm homes and rundown steel structures. I was always fascinated by the way nature seemed to devour and erase these man made structures. Without these abandoned shells creating a latticework for the flora, the plants wouldn't have the necessary support to grow. Inspired by natures resiliency to survive and grow through adversary. My works ask for you to view them as ruins found from a lost time and place, a world where we get a glimpse at tomorrow.
