Night Bloom, (2006), installation (paint, textiles -- cut curtains from the sixties and seventies, felt, pins, floor pieces -- plywood and suede, carpet), 29' x 11'

The concept of "Home" and its associations often guide my practice. Over the past ten years this interest has frequently led me back to my original home of Montana, its culture, landscape, heritage, and my parents, who have each had a strong influence on my art making. I'm drawn to the natural world, its vastness, its beauty, and its hues of greens, yellows, browns, and the bright colors of wildflowers.

Night Bloom is inspired by my love of patterns and textiles and the complex relationships and evolution between conventional/structured practices and environments (physical and psychological) and those of a dissenting and organic nature. Visually this has translated into the intersections and historical contexts between fine art, design, architecture, and traditional crafts. The landscape of Night Bloom is a fantastical flourish of colors, shapes, and textures that aims to give viewers the same experience of magical awe that one has in the Big Sky country.
