My practice encompasses a variety of experimental processes that animate both natural and constructed environments, seeking to form connections between culture, nature and place. I am concerned with how physical, tactile interactions in nature can shape our inner experiences and understanding of the world. I currently live and work in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

walking along the shore, a warm summer's day
flowing river, driftwood, mud, bushes
wandering, exploring materials and earth
collecting, placing, bending, walking, floating
a voyager and wanderer

The outline of her body lying flat on the landscape
the shape defined using driftwood and water.
Starring into the sky, between heaven and earth.

The Seed, the Tree and the Rain Man

This installation was created for the Ruin and Reclamation exhibition. My body was the template for the figure on the wall which was rubbed on with mud. The tree limb is a clipping from an apple tree and the soil is from the garden in our backyard. I found an abandon chunk of cement in the basement where i was creating the installation and decided to include it. To create continuity and ambiguity I covered the cement chunk with mud. I feel as though I am like a director creating a scene with objects to build narrative and explore relationships. I want this work to reflect the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.

As I was walking along the river contemplating an intervention I noticed a pool of water on the shore in the shape of a flat oval. I decided to reinforce this shape to make it more pronounced and symmetrical by adding stones around it. I also decided that it would be interesting to create a loop by adding an island of stones in the middle. It took me about an hour to pile the stones into the pool because it was over a foot deep in the center. Once i had accomplished this I decided to add stones to the pool directly above to accentuate a circle. I am pleased with the way this piece worked out.
