I practice and create a model for empathy through the lens of material and purpose.

In this work my materials; scrap radiator metal, crushed glass of homewares from goodwill, and salvaged wood,

all come together in the form of an aerial landscape. An expression of tragic beauty, scorched lands, disappearing waters,

and the wake in our identities that these events have created. To have empathy, we must understand the history,

honor the pain, and express the gifts the path has given us.”
