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.
My work investigates my relationship with nature. Nature being who we are as humans and our relationship with the landscape that surrounds us. I am inspired by the poet Gary Snyder who says “There is no nature, we are nature”. I am curious why and how we divide ourselves from our nature in a fast-paced, data-driven world.
Sculptures in hand crafted boxes with hinged doors are intented to be a contemplation and conversation about contemporary educational practices.
Get a peek inside my studio as I post the results of my drawing challenge for 2016 and develop a series of new sculptural works with assembled nature pieces from my garden and the local marshlands.
Dust off the family heirlooms, photographs, letters, or special objects to come together in an original piece of art.
