Work (in progress)

More now than ever, there are ethical environmental implications associated with the creation of art. I believe that artists today must be aware of the impact their art and arts practices have on the environment. To date, my practice has aimed to generate a reciprocal relationship with the natural environment. I am deeply committed, through the process of creating art, to discovering sustainable and ecologically beneficial solutions that may serve as models for engaged and informed interaction with the environment.

 As a visual artist, my investigations into ecosystems have identified the critical role that both honeybees and birds play. My work and research are realized through the everyday, easily replicated efforts of building artificial habitats and within nesting boxes and beehives I create sculptures in collaboration with these animals.
