Exploring, describing and seeking ways to find context and meaning are essential in my art making. This act of envisioning makes the unknowable visible though materials and processes.

Qualities of light and darkness, hidden gifts of subtlety, doing less, letting go are the current explorations of the unknown which propel me to find new ways of making, new ways of seeing.
