I live among majestic trees...

My present work examines the interaction between naturally sourced static materials (such as bronze or steel) and the changes in nature as it weaves through it, wrapping around it over time. 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.
