The work that I make is rooted in my early years growing up by the ocean. I infuse my imagery with dynamic weather-- playing with expressions of light, water, and wind. I create landscapes and immersive worlds with the aim of inspiring feelings of connection/memory/imagination to each person's most vivid and personal landscapes, both in the natural world and within.
The objects and shapes that I work with are a mix of the real: ocean, kites, sculptures, books of poems and the imagined: water and land soundscapes, impossible creatures, warped time. Mindfulness is the basis of my artistic process.-- a piece could emerge from watching my hand move through water or light spill across the floor. I see each piece as a recording of a moment in time, captured yet still vibrating. Nothing is at a standstill. Materials move from paint to video freely. As forms enter the fields of color, water, wind, and atmosphere, they transform and change shape, enhancing ideas of fluidity and inevitable change.
