I am interested in beauty, but I mistrust it. Instead, I look for beauty that exists in tension between nature and artifice, the awe of visual spectacle, and humanity’s desire to bridle nature and time.

As a child, I often fantasized about nature, and my determination of it – at least in my mind – fulfilled a sense of control that I lacked in life. As an adult, I find myself returning to these concerns and using them as the subject of my artwork, while considering their larger symbolic relevance, both personally and societally.

In recent years, I have worked almost exclusively with resin, in bodies of work that can be categorized as flower, tree, sea, and rock forms. Flowers interest me because of their transient nature, their association with memorials, and their potential as vehicles for riotous color, as I assemble them into wall installations composed of hundreds of pieces. Tree forms manifest as logs, cross sections or sticks. When a massive backyard tree was cut down at my childhood home, I became intrigued by the trunk, and the wavering network of rings that recorded the rainfall and hardships of every year. I considered the forms as material timekeepers, an idea that permeates much of my interests. Coral forms also draw upon themes of continuance, as they refer to reefs that are thousands of years old. Finally, freestanding sculptures centering on minerals, crystals, and geodes are created with multiple parts of cast, assembled and carved resin. My goal is for them to seem preposterous and wondrous, to underscore that nothing is more perplexing, complex, and extraordinary than nature.
