Artist Statement

On daily walks, I sense the minutiae of the world-in-formation: the mingling of textures, the transformation of colors in sunlight, and the reactions of matter to the weather and wind. When one is attentive and engaged, the open environment is full of infinite wonder and enchantment. I am drawn to the materials that exist in the natural world and the organic processes that work to transform them. By bringing an array of materials into my studio, I follow them as a wayfarer through a landscape. Reacting to their forces and flows, I work in an alchemical mode of the perhaps-once-living. The limitless and unrepeatable discernments in this process allow me to briefly catch a glimpse into the bewildering patterns of being.
