"Art that cultivates joy and vitality by connecting people to each other and to the land where we live, work, and play."
I am an artist, environmental designer, and permaculturist based out of Littleton, Colorado. My mission is to cultivate joy and vitality by connecting people to each other and to the land where I live, work, and play. I mostly paint murals, build site-specific installations, and create wooden wall sculptures based on patterns that I find in my garden or in the wild. My pieces are typically bright and modern, technologically-aided abstractions that bring to light typically unperceived natural patterns and structures. In other words, they are bridges between technology and nature like microscopic views of botanical structures that are enlarged, abstracted, and reassembled. I am also called to build community through art. Thus, I strive to create pieces that are physically, intellectually, and spiritually interactive as this increases the transformative impact of the art on the people, the place, and ultimately the planet. I also see the solution to the damage we are doing to the planet in permaculture design and strive to connect my artistic practice to these important principals.
