The Land Outside My Door

The Midwest is flyover country according to most news organizations; nothing of note to be considered. Every day, no matter the weather, I walk and photograph the macro and the minutia on the land outside my door. I use these images as touchstones for this series of prints, my ongoing sculptural interventions in the woods and for the small wooden artworks that I create from reclaimed ash wood. I am part of a web, connected and somehow separate from all other organisms. Intimately knowing the patterns of plants and animals in the rhythm of seasons brings me great, anchoring joy.
