Artist Statement

My photo-encaustic work considers the enduring question of what we elect to keep or preserve and the reasons why; and invites reflection on what, or whom, we discard along the way. In the seriesStill Time on Pye Pond, a southern pictorial memoir, objects stand in for people, for kinships tangled like Spanish moss, for ideas as deeply anchored as the roots that drain the soil, for time as still as the water on the sheltered pond. For things that could be fixed. In my new Greenvilleseries, I shift my focus to the built environment.
