artist statement

I am attracted to contradictory realities in everyday life. I see nature and humanity simultaneously in conflict and inextricably intertwined. My work deals with the tensions this creates. I also try to emphasize our experience of the world as relational and conditional rather than singular and fixed. Concept, meaning, and symbolism are important but fluid, often ambiguous. I am sensitive to the tensions and narratives of living in an environment that is increasingly compromised or redeemed by our own actions. I am not a dispassionate observer and although the landscape I experience may be beautiful, it is never pristine.
