Statement

Nature is a pure place for my artistic inspiration. It is also the place for finding myself.
This is for the human who finds meaning in nature, who comes from nature, and who will return to it again.
All challenges of human life, all concerns and plights of modern life, can be forgotten in nature for a quiet moment.
Traveling, exploring nature, moving beyond the stressful city life, human and natural, are some of the themes that I seek to explore in my work.
Performance, fiber installation, site specific projects, film and photography are the varied ways I use to express this deep searching

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
