Artist Statement

I look at the phenomena of the natural world through the lens of story and imagination. I take a "mad scientist" approach to art making: I create hybrid creatures by morphing together humans, plants, and animals.

I see these "nature morphs" as mediators between worlds, inhabiting a hypothetical, plausible, other world constructed in the art studio yet solidly rooted in nature.
