My work is an investigation into my experience of the landscape. The forms I make out of steel or wooden rods and wires are drawings in space, hanging precariously and seemingly in flux. I am inspired by trees in the winter in Minnesota, fall leaves in Connecticut and spring in North Carolina, as well as ocean life, rock formations, pods, stars and fireworks. The energetic gestures I create are the result of my desire to see the landscape come alive, as if these forms were living beings transformed by their encounter with art. News

This fall I am very excited to be the McGuire Artist-in-Residence at the Blake School.
I am also working on a project through a grant with the Minnesota State Arts Board with Elizabeth Simonson.
