Artist Statement

Water's physical and metaphysical powers to unite, circulate, connect and sustain inspire me to hand cut patterns in paper, Tyvek, Mylar and plastic in order to interpret the structure of water, bodies of water and environmental water issues ranging from the ecosystem breakdown in the Great Lakes to the Yampa River in Colorado to clean groundwater in Nebraska.
