Ecology is magic to me. I grew up in a forest in northern Wisconsin—following streams to see where they led, keeping grass snakes in jars, drinking tea cups of rain: a barefoot and disheveled child, bowled over by splendor.
Those hours studying intricate textures and forms shaped my sensibility. Since I am also a writer, subtext, wit, and narrative infuse my art. In my work, I explore the connection between nature and metaphor, color and poetry, pattern and clarity.
