I was adopted into a Forest Service Family and never fit in with my classmates, nor did I live anywhere long enough to feel grounded. I moved from one US National Forest Station to the next. Regardless of the location, the forest became my constant, my home, and my place. In the forest, surrounded by trees, there are no people to analyze, critique, categorize or judge. I feel safe there.
A personal connection to the environment shapes and affects both my existence and identity. My creative process currently revolves around interaction and interpretation of the landscape and reflects my fascination with developing intersections between research, aesthetics, science, and performance.
