My photo
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.

Installation III

This is my work in the Ecotone exhibition at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery. The exhibition runs from February 9 to April 14, 2013.

Installation III
Plants collected from a foothills fescue prairie in Beauvais Lake Provincial Park. Our fescue grasslands have changed dramatically over the last 100 years. They are fragmented and in decline due to the cumulative effects of roadways, urbanization, cultivation, livestock grazing, petroleum, natural gas and other developments. In this work I am trying to bring attention to these disappearing grasslands and the abundant biodiversity found within them. Protected parks like Beauvais Lake Provincial Park help to ensure that these native grasslands continue to survive. Plants used in this work are: foothills rough fescue, yarrow, death camas, aster, northern bedstraw, bluebell, red paintbrush, shrubby cinquefoil, wild rose and saskatoon.
