I integrate Various media - encaustic wax, macro and microscopic photography, printmaking, drawing, thread, oil paint, and metal leaf.

The imagery used connects and contrasts site specific observation - 
most recently from geologically significant locations
in Sweden, iceland, Norway, and idaho.
my process combines scientific and personal, intuitive exploration.
I capture my experience of time and place

by gathering on-site drawings, photographs, sound recordings
and biological samples to place under my microscope.
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.
