“Working with wood is part of my everyday life. It is my connection to the earth and the environment in which I live. While pursuing my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography and sculpture, I became interested in the art of woodturning. It was during this time I began developing the process and body of work that I call “Vessels within Vessels”.
My philosophy has always been to work in harmony with our environment and not to destroy something to create something. In all my art, I use only recycled and easily sustainable woods. Being able to create meaningful work from a renewable resource such as wood is very fulfilling. Being conscious of this has allowed me to work with the subtle beauty and dimension this discarded wood processes.
My intent as an artist is to express my feelings about nature, my family and natural processes – issues that relate directly to me such as the birth of my children. I work in series or bodies of work, which allow me to explore these issues in depth within the context of that particular body of work. Throughout the creative process I am continually reminded that I have not and will not ever be content. I will continue to create and strive for that body of work that is yet to be conceived.”
