A History of Work

Over the past 15 years, my work has been investigation of place, land, and how we identify ourselves through location. I explore place and what it means through a variety of mediums from photography to painting to printmaking to installation. Below, you will find  bodies of work in various mediums in decending chrono.

Mapping Nowhere (2012 - present)

Mapping Nowhere is comprised of 14 paintings, each in the range of 48 x 48" (created on a flexible substrate and then mounted to a clean white panel). Each painting is representative of a specific place or region. The scale varies: some of the pieces cover hundreds of miles, some just a few miles. These are places I've lived, or have visited frequently, and are places that have influenced my life. How do we define ourselves by where we live?  How do others define us?  How does place define or even change us?  These works simultaneously reference my experience of place and my investigation of the relationship between people and place.
