My visual work is constantly involved in a conversation between nature and abstraction, location and desire, and activism and materials.  Most of us live out our days around a set of routine actions, and in those actions form belief systems.  Since art exists within a social context I am constantly searching for ways to include art and art making in those actions.  The potential of art that I am interested in is the transformative power of the creative process, both in the making and the viewing: specifically the potential that art has to remind us of connections between each other and to things larger than ourselves.
