My studio practice seeks an intimate, reverent relationship with the Earth on which I live by opening a path between the visible world and the mythic realm of the psyche. I explore this intention with a tool kit of imagery and objects, including landscape, art history, blue painter’s tape, physical artifacts such as feathers, birch bark, seed pods, and wood, Jungian archetypes, New Age imagery, and resonant tidbits from popular culture. I aim, with this practice, to upend accepted ideas of value, commodity, and sophistication in a way that, hopefully, makes way for new ideas about our relationship to our history, our land, and our spiritual life.
