Nature reveals itself with intricate patterns and compelling details.  A brief sighting of wildlife or the discovery of a growing jewel can be a transitory respite or a life long enrichment.  My attention has long been held by these glimpses and discoveries; they have become my source of sanctuary and personal rhythm.  Collecting natural forms and incorporating them into my work reaffirms truths that begin with the self, but are at once universal.  A certain intimacy is established by both acts--the collecting and the making  I take note of what nature reveals and translate with metaphors of vulnerability, transformation and survival.  I present those translations to the viewer in the form of layered histories that challenge with discoveries yet to be made.
