Artist Statement: The natural phenomena of the earth, which are normal and usually unnoticed, are the intriguing, tiny objects found when gazing down. My fascination with the ground and the things we stomp over in our everyday lives has extended into my work. I create a new realm for these objects in order to transform society’s generalization of them into precious and obvious matter. Lake Superior and its shores has become my inspiration and working environment in which I realize my surroundings and incorporate them into my work. To me the geological formation and deformation of the land and lake can be the smallest stone I discover among a million grains of sand or the push of the water along the shoreline. I combine elements and ideas of nature to create wearable objects.
