Artist Statement

I bring forth that which is within me by weaving poetry into various media like film and printmaking. I create images and meaning through playful meditations and studies in language, transformation, ecology, and perception. My letters to the world, exploring themes of the pastoral, trickster poetics, and nonviolence, serve as chthonic and visceral vessels that braid landscape’s shapes, rhythms, and textures with the mysteries of human experience. I hope to bear gifts of unknowing that transport readers to a space where self and environment merge, leading to an understanding that the forces of nature move and shapeshift within us and beyond us.
