"My mission is to confront ecological concerns that may not be widely publicized. I see public art as a way to reference the environment surrounding the viewer. Each piece reflects the uniqueness of the location, drawing on natural, historic, and cultural inspiration. I research native flora and fauna and anthropic stress on the natural landscape. I am interested in how life adapts to the natural limitations of an environment, and how lifeforms either continue or fail to adapt to limitations imposed by human presence."
