Statement

I would say I am most inspired by natural disasters, earthquakes, erosions, rolling hillsides, land-dividing roads, islands and the vastness of the sea. Growing up on the northern California coast, I was always very aware of the close relationship between the land and the sea – watching the waves as they washed upon the land, always wearing down on the hillsides and washing away the roadways.

This erosion has come to really intrigue me over the years. There is something so natural, so straightforward and so revealing about erosion. It reminds us how fragile, how forever-changing this land is, and how quickly the ground could simply vanish from beneath our feet. We are constantly clinging to the last bit of land there is around us, never truly wanting to give into Mother Nature’s will. While we know the dangers that exist when building our houses, our roads, and our lives so close to the ocean, we can’t resist that kinship with the sea.

Natural disasters have the power to evoke a very basic human connection and reaction to the world. They remind us of the change and transformation occurring in our own lives and our own ultimate demise and destruction.
