Artist Statement & Biography
The success of my practice thrives on the interaction with new communities and environments. Through a careful investigative method of gathering regional materials, native plants, local stories, architectural landmarks and historic research I have focused on the creation of site-generated works of art that illuminate the unobserved in our day to day surroundings and the challenges facing our environment.
