ARTIST STATEMENT
My current work unites disparate landscape elements to create imaged places.  This work stems from a reflection on personal history and experience of place, and an interest in how a landscape both defines and reflects its inhabitants.  As individuals and groups change and structure places, identities and thoughts are changed and structured as well; I want to explore and understand these implications.
