My work uses water to communicate my observations
of the Mississippi River. Just as local communities
exploit this resource for its economic
potential, I exploit water for its potential in art.
Drawing on the characteristics of water, I am
able to create works that impart a sense of anticipation,
as they change over time. Water’s physical
weight, evaporation, path of flow, and life-sustaining
ability allow me to create objects that
present this essential natural element so that it
can be admired outside of its normal everyday
