My current practice has evolved from my experience as a printmaker, as I look for sources of energy and material on site that can animate and document the natural rhythms and cycles that surround us. My work employs the site itself as an active participant in the creation of the work, from the tides riding the canvas to bleeding tree rings onto paper, and these material-rich interactions with the environment continue to be the root of my practice.

Mixed media work on canvas and paper from these process-driven and often durational installations become records and artifacts of vanished actions while documentation of the processes emerge to materialize the most ephemeral aspects of the work. Working around the basic premise of impermanence, that all things begin and end, my works charts how this truth manifests in both the absence and presence of materiality, prompting questions about how we interact with both the material world and our knowledge of the impermanent nature of things.
