Statement:

 

The images that I gather and use in my paintings, mixed media collages and prints come from the natural environment.

I use digital photography to record fragile and momentary occurrences and events that reveal the extraordinary designs found in nature.

I record the details of things living, growing and dying. I gather, collect and arrange the fabric of worlds that are often overlooked and constantly changing.

I bring elements of the landscape into the studio and make arrangements of seed pods, spent flowers, leaves, shells and so on. 

I scan and take rubbings of what I collect on my walks and add these remnants to other subjects that I have previously printed and photographed. 

With a traditional press, an inkjet printer and a scanner, I print and paint on a variety of archival rice papers and surfaces that I make in my studio using acrylic paint and gel mediums.

Through concentrated observation, I collect and record the shifting nature of our shared environment which enriches my experience of a life lived as a witness and as an Artist.
