ARTIST'S STATEMENT

As an interdisciplinary artist, my work has evolved over time. The majority of my work focuses on the environment, nature or natural elements in the environment. I am also interested in exploring connections, connections between the natural world and the human body, connections in the environment and the human-to-human connection through the use of various technologies.  Through this exploration, much of my work takes aspects of nature, science, or  society that might typically be unseen by the human eye and brings these aspects in to the normal visual plane. By seeing these aspects in a new way and with a different perspective, new connections can be made and an enhanced appreciation or awareness can be achieved. When creating my work, I use various mediums including mixed media and a combination of photography, digital imaging, graphic design and oil painting.
