Artist Statement
Rumble Tumble Yonder Bumble is made from materials found on-site at Franconia Sculpture Park. It is a doodle, a creature, and a moment frozen in time.
 
Within my practice generally, I seek out and use a variety of media. My work has ranged from installation, illustration and performance, to sculpture, photo, video and books and zines. Across all of my work, however, is the impulse to understand and engage with the world around me, explore, create stories and point to the ones that are already there.
 
Magic, whimsy and nonsense have been, and continue to be, essential to my life and art practice. In creating this piece out of material that I found, I aimed to allow great flexibility and spontaneity into the work-- and further practice those characteristics within myself.
