Body in Landscape has been evolving over many years of exploration in art-making. The Pacific Northwest landscape, changes in seasons, botany & ecology, human effects on the environment, the natural world, and concepts of movement, are all themes I explore when making works for this series.
Under Body in Landscape as a heading, I have created other series that fit within it in a variety of means. Included here you will find: Dust Series consists of large drawings reflects on my personal experiences from living in the Inland Northwest landscape. Pieces Series was created at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT during my stay there in July 2012. The SDSU Project is from my time at South Dakota State University working with students there for a week-long collaborative residency. Vivid Series are an experiment into a new "installation/large drawings consisting of many parts" that continues to change with each work, as i have decided that all of these projects have become experiments in making. I am learning a lot as I venture into mediums I am less familiar with, and am willing to take chances/fail at what I am working on to come to a new result.
