Artist Statement

Artist Statement

Through my camera lens, I photograph the natural world, honoring smaller parts of the grand whole, removing notions of time and materiality. Observing the unobserved, I search for moments where the image transforms nature into a two-dimensional visual and sensuous experience. These observations manifest through my photography, mixed media, installation, and video practices. 

My mixed media works expand these inquiries with the application of oil pastel, pastel pencil, and charcoal to my original photographs. As I approach each archival pigment print with an open mind, the marks occur spontaneously in an exploration of shape, color, texture and emotion.   

The pandemic and its isolation propelled me into very different emotional territory. I ventured into an intense period of creating a Covid-19 Memorial, a visual elegy, which includes an installation and a video. I continue to explore this avenue of expression, employing man-made and organic materials as metaphors for the human experience.  

The story of my logo

My enchantment with nature began as a child when I spent my summers in the Catskill Mountains of New York. My family stayed in a "bungalow colony" and we children had the freedom to wander in the forest and along the creek that ran behind it. We could explore for hours. 

Hexagram #29, K'an/ Water

Years later, backpacking through the Sierra Nevadas and the Rocky Mountains, I would meander along other creeks, often taking a dip in small pools and icy waterfalls. In my twenties, I studied the ancient Chinese text, The I Ching, or Book of Changes. One afternoon, while sitting next to a running brook and being lulled into a quiet mind, I read the text's hexagram, Water.  This hexagram became my personal symbol and life lesson.

“...It flows on and on, and merely fills up all the places through which it flows; it does not shrink from any dangerous spot nor from any plunge, and nothing can make it lose its own essential nature. It remains true to itself under all conditions…”   

As I watched a lone droplet fall from the top of a gentle waterfall and quickly blend into the rushing waters, I perceived my world in a profoundly new way.  I imagined the singular droplet as representing my individuality, and simultaneously, grasped my oneness with the whole of the universe.
