These sculptures represent my most recent work from the summer and fall of 2016.
The source of my art has always come from nature and the landscape.
Many of the materials were gathered from the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Dorchester County on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
In the winter they burn the marshes to promote new growth in the spring.
The process of the first growth in early spring through the lush growth of summer to the remnants of late fall and winter capture my attention. The changes and cycle that nature goes through are my focus . The burning the refuge conducts in the winter to promote new growth in the spring integrate human action with nature, to work in conjunction to foster regeneration of the marshes.
