Being situated in North Central MA, the wooded landscape profoundly informs and influences my practice. The objects and installations I create conceptually speak to sustainability, materiality, habitations and environments both natural and human-made. I think about how our anthropological history, development and identity have depended upon trees. It is important to my practice that my objects give voice to the individual character, color, natural or hand-made markings embedded within and upon each material to reveal its sub-sequential lives, ultimately engaging with the viewer’s personal experiences, memories and meaning.
