Upcoming Exhibitions and Events

I began stripping the bark off branches and bending these branches into forms while mourning my mother's death in 1993. These early pieces were allowed to weather, dry, crack, shrink, mold and finally fall apart. I found myself drawn to natural processes and materials using installation in a landscape structure.


My work is inspired by nature and landscape. I alter the materials I use while striving to retain their unique characteristics. Ultimately, I am addressing both physical transformation and opposing natural phenomenon such as wind, stillness, shadow, and light. Underlying it all is a sense of the transitory nature of life.

As an artist, I am concerned with the traditional issues of form, color, line, space and texture. I combine the languages of art and nature to reflect the
transient and fragile qualities of life and landscape forms in installations, sculptures and two dimensional work.
