Artist Statement

I work primarily in installations and community public art projects. I also make use of digital media in the planning process, to communicate with others involved, to document the work and to produce 2-dimensional work.

My recent projects have reinforced my objectives to collaborate with the sciences. I examine environmental issues through a long process of educating myself on the subject. It is exciting for me as an artist to work with biologists who share a similar passion. Many of my installations are in public areas. I am extremely interested in working in this environment.

Through my work I am concerned with the issues of public art and public accessibility to it. I enjoy the challenge of creating work that considers an audience of both art educated as well as non-art educated people. Aspects of community oriented art and educational components are important elements of my projects. My last projects have included working with university students and school children who participated in the creation of the work.
