Artist Statement
As an artist I am concerned with how the physical landscape is transformed into a cognitive one and how personal and public spaces intersect in the stories we tell about a place and the way we choose to represent it. The consequence of this for me as an artist has been that most of the work I do whether its printmaking, book arts, video, or installation begins with a place, a site or location that becomes a jumping off point for my imagination.

Each project or series that I undertake is arrived at through an intuitive, research-based approach to observing, studying, and documenting specific locations with the hope of creating a dialogue between myself and the viewer that provides an opportunity for shared exploration and interpretation of places. I believe that by developing a shared understanding/familiarity with the physical world, we can encourage empathy for the spaces we occupy and perhaps encourage a greater sense of stewardship and care.

Recent projects such as Another Time, Stars to burn, and while the earth remains have been highly invested in looking at specific watersheds, namely the Oconee River in Athens, GA, the Cuyahoga River in NE Ohio, and the Hocking Rivers in Athens, Ohio as  metaphors for time and change as well as sites in need of advocacy as they have been greatly affected by over development and climate change.

This exhibition is sponsored by The Blue House Gallery in partnership with Front Street and is made possible by an MCACD special projects grant.
