"I am inspired by the relationship between humans and the water and land that sustain them. My work explores how landscapes change over time focusing on those places where destruction and renewal, wounding and healing, absence and presence overlap.
I use textiles as well as natural plant materials in my land art installations. In some installations I place textiles in dry landscapes to create the illusion of water. In others, the textiles and natural plant materials are used to illuminate the relationship between the present landscape and the past landscape.
The aesthetic of beauty is important in all of my work; it helps make the serious and difficult nature of the subject matter I’m addressing more approachable.
