I believe Wisconsin is a very special place, evident by its beautiful landscape. Living in rural Wisconsin gives me many opportunities to experience spiritual and mystical forces that I find in this beautiful natural world. I am interested in how these experiences manifest themselves in me with a connection to the earth, land and sky. Through my work I hope to express to the viewer these experiences.
The sense of rhythm in my work is to express the cycles that are an integral part of nature and so common to life itself, the rhythm of birth, life, fruition, death, decay and rebirth, matter being transformed from one form to another. The darkness is to communicate that there is so much more to life than what we see with our eyes, it suggests us to travel from the conscious to the unconscious worlds. We need to engage all our senses, even senses that we may not be aware of at this time to see beyond the physical world.
