My work is an exploration of the natural world. I use scraps of wood, paper, bone, and fabric and include both found and crafted specimens. Each art piece contains a variety of processes including collagraph printmaking, building, and sculpting. There is a certain practicality and reflection to my work. I work with things that have died, but left a beautiful reminder of their existence (skulls, vertebrae, fossils, and insects). I am inspired by the sense of discovery of 18th and19th century natural history collections, and the reliquaries housed in the great cathedrals. As they do, my art invites a closer study and preservation of the earth around us.
From downtown, take Church St past Heritage Green to Buncombe St and turn right onto Rutherford (Poinsett Hwy) toward Cherrydale. Turn right onto Furman Hall Rd and then take the first left onto Goldsmith. The studio is the second building on the right.
