Having grown up in the woods and waters of coastal Maine, I feel permanently connected to the ocean and the land. Whether in the forest, the plains, the city, a digital space, a gallery, a bank, or the supermarket, I believe that examining my relationship to my environment leads to a better understanding of myself and of the world. Through painting, video, photography, and new media, I create pieces that explore how humans participate in natural processes. My pieces often revolve around images of decay. I employ burning, bleaching, and bleeding as my mediums. My work operates with simplicity and slowness, encouraging contemplation and meditation.
