Cloak of Seasons

Cloak of Seasons

“Whatever faith or beliefs we carry, the tides of nature move around and through us. Every breath we take is an affirmation of our connection with the earth. I like to create sculpture on site, with materials found locally. In this way I seek to encourage a dynamic relationship between the people, the site and the sculpture.”
