"I think of my work as a distillation of how I perceive our evolving cognizance of Nature and our shifting sense of human scale.
I'm motivated by the wild, thriving margins of the built environment that surrounds me, and the swirling bits of detail that coalesce into the experience of Place.
My Art in Movement project concerns the connections between the landscape and latent memory.
I'm interested in how places are personally experienced and how we
superimpose meaning over our surroundings.
I want to arrange an activity in which we consider how the land can store and evoke memories, in both epic and personal terms."
