My body of work expresses my admiration for nature’s balance of expressive qualities and welcoming interactions despite the way people use it. In making this work I sought to find, within my local environment, something influential from my childhood. And there I saw the balance between nature and life. My work is a performance of the life around us, and makes us aware of a duality between nature and life. I want the audience to rejuvenate their minds whenever they walk in nature and to find it in themselves to discuss and share their reactions to the detoxification and fortification of nature.
