Much of my practice is an exploration of memory. The process is always very physical: simultaneously excavating and constructing, building up and digging through layers of evolving images.
I'm particularly interested in the physical nature of psychology, and recent findings in the field of epigenetics—how environmental and behavioral experiences influence reactions at a cellular level, even across generations.
My landscape work is based in observation, focusing on the experience of environment and space.
Yale University, Graduate School of Art 1992-3

My work has been shown in the U.S., Canada and abroad, and is found in many private collections.
