Surge, 1996 - 2008  

For me, the commonplace materials of everyday life in rural Alberta are the resources that lie within my experience and give energy and inspiration in the creation of my art. These materials evoke specific references to harvesting the land, and preparing it for  the winter months. It also signals a more metaphorical reading as to what my relationship is with the land.

This grouping of forms evokes its own set of associations and ideas. Completely unadorned (except for the binding), it’s form curled protectively, they are gentle reminders that can suggest awakening and regeneration. They are without beginning or end and the ritual of their creation is closely associated with our own sense of connectedness with nature.
