BA / early childhood & family studies
MA / clinical mental health counseling & expressive arts therapy

my work is about the process of feeling. it is about seeing something beautifully small and exaggerating it to a place of prolonged excitement. it is my hope that my work explores the joy & craziness of human connection to the natural world. 

I try to live by the norwegian concepts of "friluftsliv" & "koselig." when working with children at a forest kindergarten in trondheim, I learned that it is possible to do art with natural materials, no matter the weather. I was introduced to the concept of land art, its ability to connect people to nature, and how art can be done in nature without harming the natural ecosystem. my hope is to always engage in the mystery of enhanced self-awareness through arts in nature.
