Artist Statement

Instruments have been made on site at O'Connor Ridge, while meditating on the question “can I intertwine my spirit or being into the landscape?” I gathered simple found materials and combined them to generate forms. I let my conscious mind wander, allowing my subconscious and intuition to take over. Through this process I cross between the rational world and the divine, unlocking the mythic potential inherent in both myself and the landscape.
