artist statement

My work is reflective of the synergistic connections I see between man and nature. I am interested in the ever-widening concentric circles of connectedness between all things on earth and beyond. My investigations have brought me to a realization of the commonality of many systems in nature and the manmade world and the similarity of mythologies and metaphors surrounding both realms. The maps that are part of much of my collage work have become the symbol for our human need to control and contain nature. The objects from nature represent the organic nature of our lives and the natural world we are a part of. The intent of my work is to bring a moment of reflection upon the world and the connection we have to it.
