ABOUT

My interdisciplinary practice is about connecting to the natural environment; physical, atmospheric, emotional, spiritual, metaphysical. These connections shape and affect my existence, identity and wholistic place in the world. Adopted, I never quite fit in, my family moved from one US National Forest Service Station to the next. The forest became my constant, my home, my place; I am safe there…complete. I feel, understand and read nature and am fascinated by her stories. To this end I am also interested in nature deficit and ecological trauma/grief. I explore boundaries, land, desire, identity, belonging, memory and history, environmental experience tied to place and how environmental and ecologically-focused histories and stories can be told. My work ranges in context and represents my fascination with the intersection of aesthetics, science and physicality plus the performance aspects of methodology.
