As a naturalist and artist, the surrounding habitat provides me with a source of beauty and inspiration. My documentation of the landscape helps me discover the intersection of my experiences with the natural world. This artistic ecological succession allows me to trace a path through a mix of media and method to bridge art and nature. The constant motion of the creative and destructive cycles in the environment mirror my own rhythms of self discovery. Modeled after owl pellets, Elemental Bezoars for Self Healing illustrates the continuous cycle of both restoring my emotional body as well as releasing these spent parts of myself back to the earth. Self and nature in process together support change and create new growth.
