My artistic practice consists of a multitude of sculptural materials and techniques to create small-scale representational pieces. Employing the concept of bricolage—working with what is at hand—I combine found objects with other media including clay, fibres, and wood.
My practice emerges from personal encounters with the natural world, specifically growing up in rural New Brunswick. The emphasis on scale in my art punctuates the need to address current global environmental and socio-political circumstances.
My physical, mental, and emotional connections to the land often serve as a point of reference. Fundamental to this dialogue is the relationship between the particular form of being-in-the-world that is rural living and the approach to context and materials that is born from this way of life. This way of learning is intimately related to place, to specifics, yet it is also transferable.
