Earth Day Artist Talk

Why I Do What I Do; (3)

April 22nd, Earth Day, I gave a talk on how I try to impact our planet in positive ways, and how I see humans fitting into and improving our environments.  This relates to my art practice as the pieces I create are meant to help link us to their inspirations; the textures and feelings I see and experience as I travel outside, face to the sun, in our world.  We are a part of what we create and I enjoy making vessels that connect us to the outdoors; be it off the grid or on the grid; submerged in untouched landscapes or city living.  We play a role in all these situations and I am successful in communicating this idea when my work is bought and brought into living spaces, as our inherent connection to nature and everything we’ve been able to create from it’s resources can be thought of and remembered daily.
