Artist Statement

Moving from the Midwest to the abundant sunlight and dramatic skies of Colorado has inspired my work. I have always been interested in looking closely at nature and find that the vast areas of wilderness in the West allow for a deeper contemplation of the ethereal qualities of the natural world – the rich colors of the land, the gentle curves of plants, the patterns of dappled light through trees. I abstract and reconfigure these patterns to convey the underlying rhythms and harmonies of our environment, creating a space that is somewhere between the real and the imagined.

I am interested in light in nature and the transcendent experience light creates. Light fascinates me. It is always changing, from day to night, from season to season, from minute to minute. It is a marker of time. It is an emotional connection – the difference between a cloudy and sunny day. I use a variety of translucent and reflective materials that bend and refract, obscure and reveal, diffusing light and casting shadows in various ways. As the light surrounding the work changes throughout the day, the work will change, as well, changing the perception of both object and viewer.
