Man’s relationship to his environment, has always held a fascination. The natural world has a complicated form and structure, a set of precedents that create and guide its existence – patterns, rhythms, formulas, the cycle of growth and decay, the juxtaposition of nature’s fragility and its power. These principles found in nature that often inform the built environment, and so a building, a tree, a city, a person, the connection with its history, its passing, its life, have become her subjects and the visual language and vocabulary that she uses. This journey of looking, being, seeing objects in her time and space, a witness to a moment of continuum, has become her work.
