Artist Statement
My work is influenced by both the practice of making and the natural forces in our environment. Physical impulses are represented in the process of creation as well as the finished piece. I find inspiration in the natural world around us, the change of seasons, rock formations, and the natural earth. Through examination of the natural, my work explores the distinction between movement and fragmentation.
