My process draws on the wisdom of contemplative traditions and themes of pilgrimage–broadly, a commitment to the spiritual journey. Through drawing, painting, and printmaking, I welcome each day as an invitation to balance on the threshold of placemaking and displacement.
Living and working at Bethlehem Farm, an intentional Catholic community in Appalachia, expands my creative vocabulary to include many kinds of home-making. The rhythms of planting garlic, repairing roofs, and cooking dinner find their way into sketchbook reflections and often unfold as small repeating series that illuminate a particular convergence of life's mystery. Each day, I am invited to hold in creative tension the reality of exploitation that plagues these mountains and the persevering hope for renewal.
