My childhood in the rural American South of the 1970's has informed my current work, yielding
compostions in which the abstract and concrete intermingle, illuminating the space between
upheaval and serenity.
My work is a mixture of elements. On the one hand it is a conversation with others working now and getting influences to respond to and on the other it is the traditional practice of just working with the materials.
My artwork is about self actualization and spiritual growth. Making art is a ritual that helps me
access the unlimited resources of my soul my imagination. The pieces are meditations on my
connection to the universe and to others.
My interdisciplinary practice explores natural systems of the body/its environment and how this is subjectively translated through our senses, employing a wide variety of techniques and materials ranging from X-rays to ice to paint.
My work focuses on "Scriptograms"; gestural writings that can express ideas beyond the actual
meaning of the words and their typical coding. The materials I use reflect an ambiguity of place
where meaning can have alternate interpretations.
