My current work is grounded in the exploration of natural phenomena and varied terrain. I’m interested in revealing dichotomies such as fragility and strength through a dramatized and revelatory lens. I transform the familiar into invented landscapes that contain distilled but recognizable characters (pods, hill forms, trees, plants), presented in a way that invites engagement through discovery, mystery and movement. The forms and textures are woven together through an active field of color and pattern. The large-often isolated shapes have human qualities and odd - yet playful - stature that suggest metaphoric associations to plant, animal and other.
