The work I create focuses on my perception of the natural world and its fragility in relation to human existence. Much of what I make––one-of-a kind books, letterpress-printed artist books, cast paper sculptures, cut-paper works and animation––brings to mind the intentional growth, pattern, and arrangement one might find in nature.
Book history, its production and the art of the book have played a pivotal role in my professional life. My bookwork largely draws from natural history and ecology, and looks at both human engagement with the environment and current ecological concerns.
The process behind each project forms a large part of my work, and is evident in the finished pieces. Just as nature takes its time to evolve, slowly and thoughtfully, I make, at a slow and deliberate pace, work that evokes that very meaning.
