My artistic process endeavors to activate an immediate and ongoing relationship with the natural world. I gather and create using earth based materials. The collaboration with both the materials and their location has a ritualistic component. The works are a meditation and honoring of this partnership.

“In our world, nothing can be known or even exist unless it is in relationship to other things. We exist to form these relationships, which make up the energy that holds creation together. When knowledge is patterned within these forces of connection, it is sustainable over deep time.” Tyson Yunkaporta Sand Talks
