I am a gatherer of things—objects, words, spirit—and a connector of fragments, to make us whole.
My work responds to the natural or built environment while providing a refuge—a space within a space—for participants and viewers. My artistic practice crosses boundaries into other spaces (physical, spiritual and imagined realities). My pieces both reference and are relics from real or imagined rituals. I create objects and performative gestures as a contemplative act. I continue to explore ways that art (both the process of creating art as well as the finished product) can transcend the political for the human. Much of the work is intended to be portable and able to cross boundaries as a metaphor for movement within and across the multiple layers of shared or contested existence over time and place.
