general Statement

My work in collage, painting, drawing and installation is a form of mapping. I often directly incorporate maps into my work to reveal human impact on the environment. I use line in my drawing and landscape paintings to capture and preserve places that will disappear as we change our environment. On the microscopic level, my abstract paintings refer to cells dividing and the movement and change that flows from life emerging and growing. Those microscopic views can be seen with change of perspective as a satellite might map out land or water. Both are living organisms, fragile and finite.
