Artist Statement

My work helps me connect to the natural world.  I explore imagery derived from nature.  My work centers on the fragility of the environment that humans seek to manipulate.  I strive for the work I make to stimulate thinking beyond the physical materials, tactile qualities and socio-political issues relating to the environment.  While the work I make is strongly personal, it touches on issues that are common to us all... identity, emotion, love, turmoil, misfortune, peace, and growth.  I seek metaphors that weave our humanity with nature to find answers to life’s questions.  I make art to help me formulate my questions about life and the world I live in.  I choose to create metaphorical references in the form of both object and installation.
