The Dry Creek Project, 2004
site specific view


My art is a response to close observation of the natural environments in which I have spent time hiking and fishing during my entire life. I often begin hiking with the premise of fishing, but then the day becomes an ongoing visual documentary of the cycles of life on and around streams and rivers. I find myself making works that are mostly from memory, but in finality, their exact replication becomes less important. In leaving the water out of my pieces the evidence of its activity becomes an isolated beauty, a sort of quiet result. I believe that when people are more aware of their own ecosystems they show more concern for the environment in general.
