My work is a progression of thresholds showing evidence of places I've been, things I'm curious about, a place at a moment in time or a notation of nature. The work I create is a visual dialogue that points me in a direction to move next, leaving a trace of where the process has been. The practice, over time, continues to bring the images into different contexts revealing surprising layers of meaning.
