My intention is to reveal a truth that will draw the viewer closer to contemplate his or her own place. I am interested in discovery through imagination and the imprint we are left with as a record or a fragment of actual experience. My work references moments in history reflecting perceptions related to the idea of place. Perceptions of place can instill comfort even when danger and uncertainty exists. For me place is not merely a reflection of the imagination, but also a reflection of experience contextualized by nature, and the ideas motivated by a history. With my work I pursue themes of nature that are active throughout the urban environment. The city is moving, breathing and fluid with energy. I am interested in the interaction between the city and its inhabitants, how people adjust to and affect their own soundings. My drawings, installation and sculpture are pathways for exploration. Through the act of making I work to gain insight that may ground me to my experiences. I make work that reveals my response to nature, my ideas and perceptions of the world around me.
