I integrate Various media - encaustic wax, macro and microscopic photography,

printmaking, drawing and metal leaf. The imagery used connects and contrasts
site specific observation - most recently from geologically significant locations
in Sweden, iceland and idaho.
my process combines scientific and personal, intuitive exploration.
I capture my experience of time and place by gathering on-site drawings, photographs,
biological samples to place under my microscope, and sound recordings.
These natural patterns are integrated with biological structures and functions, 
DNA mapping, cosmos, and topography.

I am intrigued by the intersections of science and spirit.
Where biology meets the alchemy of human experience.
​My work explores the transformative effect of specific moments and locations.
How we perceive and integrate our surroundings is neurological, individual and spiritual.
Our moments are both temporal and ethereal, and we are the intermediary.
We imprint them, and they in turn, shape us. 

I am drawn to patterns in my surroundings
and processes in the body that reflect each other.
The macrocosm and microcosm of universal order and elements around and within us,
from celestial to terrestrial, we are a reflection.

We are, indeed, stardust.
