Drawing

The drawing process of pencil to paper offers an unhurried way of seeing and listening in a fast-paced world. My drawings are sometimes incorporated into sculpture and mixed-media work, while other times they serve simply as a process of learning and thinking.

Artist Statement

Nature is all that connects us physically and emotionally. There is a divide we set as humans to be separate from “nature” in order to provide shelter and comfort, however this divide has become dangerously vast as we see natural resources dwindling. Our comforts have removed us from the very thing that sustains us. Gary Snyder, the poet, has it correct when he writes “there is no nature, we are nature”. My process of assembling found objects and meditative drawing investigates detachment and connectedness with our nature in a fast-paced world.

Sculpture

Sculptures in hand crafted wood boxes are a contemplation and conversation about environmental conservation.
