WISP Statement




Wisp explores my deepening connection to the land and sense of place by observing winter and early spring turning points.  The seasons act as a working guide in the process of living and making. The subdued vitality of winter months gives way to early spring's explosive power, explored through daily walks, the use of locally harvested plants as dye material, and the language of abstraction. In gratitude, I share this work, a testament to the land available to us at all times, in all seasons of living.  This body of work was created from walk responses on the ground that historically was Alfalati Kalapuya land.
