Artist Statement

Trees symbolize growth, strength, and wisdom. Trees also have a function, and these organisms can record everything that happens around them and to them. Trees record a physical mark of growth and this linear record is physically beautiful and an inspiration for my current body of work. While interested in these states of physical being I researched the growth patterns found in different living beings. It became evident that growth patterns are actually more similar in trees, hair, and elevation levels. Each being on this earth is very different from the rest, but one thing that connects us all is the physical marks that show scars, aging, and growth. I use different patterns of growth for different beings to show how these physical marks can still be shown, and how closely humans relate to other organisms. Linear elements dominate my prints and woodworking. I use line to create a fluid composition combined with natural and neutral earth tone colors. I create rich and layered work to give my prints texture. Mark Schatz’s sculptures inspire me to think bigger, and use different materials to execute an idea. With this body of work I challenge my audience and myself to see the similarities in things that do not share the same physical structure
