“My work exists as an invitation for viewers to examine their ecological interactions and relationships. I aspire to evoke deep reverence for the inherent connection with our plant and animal kin before they fade into distant memories due to human negligence. I create art as a form of activism and land stewardship that fosters mutualism and intimacy facilitated through the reciprocal act of printmaking. My work embraces collective experiences of life and death that promote sustainability while honoring the natural cycles of growth, decay and regeneration.

My most recent work exposes my ritualized obsession with collecting, organizing, illustrating and rearranging my personal archive of found artifacts. The time spent harvesting and working with natural materials bonds me with local ecologies. By reproducing these reclaimed remains in copper, I immortalize and perpetuate their existence through replication via the art of printmaking. A renewal of kinship with our cohabitants is necessary for our shared futures to endure.”
