Artist Statement

I've always been fascinated by patterns found in the natural world. Much of my work is about watching in silence. Within our bodies, worlds contain worlds. Cells grow and divide into arrangements of astonishing organization. In the world outside the body, within an even more vast natural order, I imagine my own place to be at once remote and central. The practice of drawing certain images—circles, cells, and archetypal symbols such as mandalas and crosses— I have noticed, has a centering effect on my mind. To me it seems the physical elements of our bodies, our bones, muscles, connective tissues, and so on all the way down to our cells, make manifest archetypal images of another order. Mindful of these, I wonder about the healing possibility of art, how the exploration of elemental forms as they manifest in life might evoke well being.
