“Throughout my work I explore the ongoing changes in the natural worlds of land and sea. How, over billions of years, erosion, the elements, along with the wear and tear created by animal and human activity combine to form patterns and textures in the land when viewed from above.
I am interested in the thought of land masses constantly changing, shrinking and shifting. Thinking about rising sea levels, added to by melting glaciers, I wonder if the land we are guests upon, is now, even more precious? These questions continue to inspire and inform my work."
