My aim is to make work that reveals that we as humans are not separate from the natural world that surrounds us, and that we share with the earth vulnerability, fragility and impermanence.  My hope is that the artwork I make allows for contemplation and reflection and a chance to pause and see the beauty of where we live so that we may take care of it, and in doing so  - take care of ourselves.
