I live among majestic trees...

My present work examines the interaction between naturally sourced "static" materials

(such as glass, wood, or steel) and the collaborative influence between the natural

world & the life of the material/art. As nature weaves through it and around it, it changes the experience and therefore the history of the work. As I move forward in my pursuit of public art making, I hope to combine this exploration with my past themes of the body, loss/gain, health, mobility/accessibility, & the social definition of ability.
