Thanks for your patience with this website! It’s currently being built out with more narrative and insights for each project. That said, you can scroll through for a photo-based overview of my work.


(Digital photos taken through a microscope.) The following images are composed of hundreds of individual images. Each “frame” is actually a  stack of images compressed to make one image, and then that compressed image is stitched with other compressed images to make a singular composition.

The following images are microscopic compositions naturally occuring in gemstones and crystals.
