Statement

At the center of my artistic explorations are questions about Time and the ephemeral nature of existence, usually rendered with humor and a touch of the theatrical. 

Over the years I have explored this theme using a variety of materials and points of view, contrasting the absurdity of the mundane with the mysteries of the universe and the laws of physics.

My current work enters into a conversation with natural materials that were once alive, the result of the cycle of the seasons; evidence of the arc of life from birth to death.

The act of gathering and recycling is central to my process and connects the work to a locale, resulting in “textiles” that create snapshots of a region’s vegetation and wildlife.  Fashioned into articles of clothing they stand in for the human relationship to natural processes as well as representing the character of the unseen wearer.
