Artist Statement: 
I am a filmmaker, photographer, and dedicated environmentalist. My practice includes shooting on film (with my beloved super 8), hand-painting film, and shooting with my 35mm photo camera to create experimental art. Working harmoniously with the land, I use natural resources and involve themes of nature in much of my work to convey the connection between humans and the environment.  Much of my work is metaphorical and relies heavily on emotion, uses metaphors for space, time and perception… and elements of surrealism to provoke the psyche of the viewer. I see film and photography as a way to create visual narratives that provoke  critical conversations in society.
