For many years I explored Childhood Memory by creating images of the landscape through the eyes of a child. My interest was to comment on the loss of innocence humans undergo with experience and to suggest that memory of childhood, fragmented as it may be, can bring one back mentally to the freedom of youth. Using steel was an obvious choice in its implication of playgrounds, but the glass is there to suggest the human aspect in the work, most importantly, the fragility yet strength of children and innocence.
Today my focus is to study the landscape through my own eyes. I am interested in celebrating nature by using it in my work as a means to express those moments in time that pass quickly and cannot be put into words, yet linger in one's mind. My hope is to bring a snapshot of the landscape into view, perhaps to bring the viewer to a place or time they have forgotten or have never experienced. To a quiet moment that has no words, only feeling.
