My current practice focuses on an interdisciplinary approach that seeks to combine both metalsmithing and painting. In attempt to merge these seemingly disparate disciplines, I isolate small sections of my paintings and picture frames, and present them in a new context. This process allows the elements to adopt new auras as they become independent and self-referential entities. Through examining notions of disciplinary hierarchy, I strive to understand how we relate to works of both fine art and craft when they are recontextualized, repurposed, and represented in unexpected ways.
