“Several of my works focus on the Universe’s hand coupled with the choices we make that bring us to where we are at this moment in time. I capture the energy of place and explore the theme of man vs. nature. Recent travels abroad have especially impacted my work. Interested in the documentation of memory and place, I strive to find beauty in often overlooked structures and spaces. At times, commentaries on the changing environment and social references surface in the work.

I love my other focus, public art, because it has the ability to remove the intimidation factor of art that so many people in our society experience. Art in public spaces becomes embedded in one’s sub-conscious, a part of daily life that one embraces without even contemplating it. Creative place making communicates distinctiveness and generates connections across communities. I am thrilled to be a part of this process.”
