I explore environmental issues through mixed media paintings using maps, recycled paper bags, and text. My work addresses nature’s resilience, cycles of regeneration and our relationship with nature. My images capture nature in a constant state of change and reference the Pacific Northwest where the sky and water are constantly moving.
My focus has transcended from nature’s power to renew itself to nature’s power to renew us. Connecting with nature can heal the human soul. We are drawn to nature and open spaces, and we have an innate urge to connect to the earth and remember that we are part of it. We are inspired, relaxed, rejuvenated, and we are renewed. In turn, this connection also makes us care for and protect those places that we hold sacred.
