artist Statement

The elements of light, shape, balance and time combine to form the means for transition from one state of being into the next. From the macro to the micro, nothing is permanent - everything is evolving and changing, the life of organic matter, the existence of non-organic material and even the earth itself. Through these concepts I examine transition varying from minutes and hours within a day to days and weeks and beyond. Changes in light happen within minutes while changes in shape and balance are only visible over extended periods of time.
Through a process of manipulating materials that are fragile, delicately balanced, and often ethereal and porous, I explore continual nuanced shifts and precarious balance of elemental forms and the environmental intersection upon them and invite the viewer to become a witness to the grace and beauty of change.
