Artist's Statement

My work expresses the compassion and respect that I have for the natural world, often connecting humans and animals in hybridity as directed by personal passion for pre-Columbian civilization and ancient art. Visiting indigenous villages and Inca ruins in South America several years ago compelled me to further this interest by taking art history courses that explored American Indian, Mayan, and Indian art and civilizations. By using paper collage and mixed media in my work, I mean to reinforce our need to
re-connect to a delicate, tactile world as a way to embrace and value the planet over a consumer culture which uses up priceless resources and drives wildlife to extinction.
