Artist Statement
As an artist, I study the human relationship to nature through architecture, engineered and wild environments. A native New Orleanian, of primary concern to me has been the endangered wetlands and the cultures effected by the loss of these lands.

My work celebrates nature and human ingenuity, while also shedding light on both sustainable and unsustainable practices. I believe humans have the capacity to restore what seems permanently lost when our imaginations and ingenuity are inspired. I analyze the interconnectedness of issues as they face Louisiana, the United States and other lands and waters around the world.
