Artist statement

As a child my playground was the wooded forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Out the back door, my brother and I were free to ramble and explore. Forts constructed beneath tangled webs of mountain laurel; treks made to pay homage to a fallen chestnut grove; a curiously shaped tree became our imagined stallion. The musky smell of decay, the power of the wind through the treetops, rare Lady Slippers along the deer paths, found objects from a people of another time. These memories and the magic of the forest are what inform this exhibition—Evergreen.
