I celebrate the complexity and beauty of nature in sculpture and land art. Primarily using forged and welded steel, wood and fiber, I create works that address human sensations and actions, reactions with weather, interactions among species, and notions of evolution. I am a retired ecologist, and this scientific background drives me to create unique views of natural processes. I am intrigued with the interactions between individuals, societies and the environment, with a constant attention to the impacts of climate change on our Earth and our children’s future. In the last 2 years, I have increasingly investigated the use of silks dyed with natural plant materials and I find that I am integrating the vibrance and movement of these fabrics with the subtle surfaces and colors of steel.
