We are all part of a interconnected ecosystem. It is imperative that people, in what ever capacity, make choices and create habits to reduce our negative impact on society and the environment. Artists, musicians and others whose work inspires public audiences, either by intent or circumstance, have a chance and responsibility to use their stage and audience to shepherd positive change.
I create works increasingly characterized by the use of reclaimed materials and collective participation. Continually investigating and experimenting, I seek to use materials and processes that are environmentally safe, sustainable and reduce landfill waste. Temporary works that incorporate reusable parts, large-scale city art projects that model Reduce, Reuse Recycle
I believe physical and emotional connection gained through hands-on experiences profoundly impacts the viewer, making the deeper meaning, motivation and value of the artwork more naturally and immediately synthesized. To maintain quality art, I have developed strategies and processes to inspire a deeper participant experience that will enhance rather than compromise the resulting artworks.
