I make paintings and mixed-media works using biomorphic and geometric patterns that often involve landscape paradigms like horizons, perspectives, or aerial views. Color and pattern are languages that I’m forever relearning. I’m a poet and sometime environmental historian as well as a visual artist, and am intrigued by intersections between natural and cultural adaptations and shifting perceptual habits. My practice is in close conversation with precarity and resilience.
