I live and work in Pennsylvania with materials like shell, bone, fur, salt, wood; charged materials that have had a discernible past life. Humans, animals, nature and ritual figure heavily.
My art is about the patriotism of the human body: its relationship to death, the earth, its vulnerability and its resilience.
I am concerned with depicting human survival and the generational transference of collective cultural memories that are passed on and remain in our DNA.
The drawings and paintings are cut out of their environment and placed into a large-scale installation to tell a story with no ending.
The stories I want to tell are part past, part future; part mine and part other.
