My work concerns meditations of delicate and complex ecosystems with imagined or perceived boundaries such as ocean shorelines, wilderness areas and lake edges. I think about how these spaces are penetrated and how humankind and nature are entangled. Often drawing on natural materials and motifs, spiritual and meditative practices to create other worldly or world-ings to ask questions around our place on this planet.
