As my work evolves I continue to expand my understanding of experiencing nature. Focusing on how we interact with nature and the results of those interactions, concentrating on outdoor spaces of recreation and the objects we leave behind. While biking on trails, walking in neighborhoods, and paddling creeks, the trash left behind by others caught my eye. I chose to collect the trash from these outdoor spaces and explore how it could be re-purposed. Transforming what we as society considers trash into useful tools to create tapestries using the cyanotype process, printmaking and hand sewing objects onto the fabric. The tapestries abstract the original purpose and value of these objects allowing the viewer to find new meaning in the work.
