My practice as an artist begins with the study and research of parallel places and ecosystems. My work emphasizes ecological patterns shared globally across continents, regions, and landforms. I am interested in how connections between disparate sites can reveal similar habitats which have subsequently receded or shifted over time, informing us about changes occurring in the past and present.
Referencing my own experiences traveling through altitudinal zones to alpine areas, and across latitudinal lines, I create work which connects geographically disconnected landscapes focusing on their shared ecologies: how each site is connected through climatic shifts, soil qualities, and habitat range. I repetitively rework traditional copperplate matrices, often in combination and collage with photo-lithography, and photography to extract observations, uncovering cultural and natural histories.
