Artist Statement:

" I have always been inspired by the natural environment both as a spectator and participant. In my current work I draw upon personal memory and experience to create objects that often refer to the landscape as well as the interactions that exist between the environment and its inhabitants.

Images and patterns from cultivated fields, textures of seashells and windblown sand, fire ant mounds and algae from stagnant water are all images and characteristics of natural beauty brought together along with cultural references, combining them into an arrangement of form and design. "
