Artist Statement

 

My work is a celebration of the energy exhibited in nature. Through reflection and reverence of the myriad natural relics left behind, I seek to tap into that energy -- to raise my own level of awareness.

The drawings, prints and sculptures I produce are animated by the belief that nature is telling us something with its own expressive vocabulary of lines, shapes, textures and colors. In every weather-worn remnant, there is a narrative—and lessons to be learned.

The rituals of drawing and erasing, cooking and beating fiber, concealing and revealing imagery, form and text, connect me with a host of questions about the presence and absence of life and how it relates to our own fragile stories.
