My work navigates the opportunities and challenges of working with available resources found in my immediate environment. I am interested in building community and connecting with natural and built surroundings through art. In my artmaking practice I recontextualize foraged natural materials and found objects to create objects, characters and scenes that explore landscapes and relationships, both indoors and outdoors. I find that working in collaborations is most rewarding, and my projects that have participatory elements are most successful. As an organizer, I create opportunities for other artists to create work in outdoor spaces and respond through their artwork to the environment.
