"Informed by a deep connection to the environment surrounding me, I make my marks like a wave. Repetitive washes of ink over vellum .Fabric soaked, dried, soaked and dried, tidal refuse. The estuarine landscape as it shifts each day, salted shores through the brackish murky depths of the red maple swamp. Season and moment in hand with mood and contemplation.
Landscape and figure play dual roles in my work, investigating the powerful connection between our bodies and the environment around us. The psychological impact of the disconnect inherent in our contemporary lifestyles. Intention to reconnect the bond... technique to mimic the actions and pace of nature."
