Artist Statement:

For anything to grow, it must be buried in the darkness.

This is where my series began two years ago (2015)…  seeds scattered underneath a crocheted tablecloth on my kitchen table. I knew it meant something to me, but I struggled to put words to what I was doing, mainly because I was in the midst of the conversation. It wasn’t until a trip to Colorado (2016) and seeing the tree-covered mountains that I saw the connection between the images and transformation within myself.

Growth is never done alone, but in many ways, it’s necessary to let it start in the shadows of your heart, in the dark, and in the private spaces we keep. It’s important not to fear these spaces. It’s part of the process, and ultimately, the only way to scale the mountains.

If you'd like to be considered for "On View at Citizen," please contact our curator, Megan Nolde, at Please send a short description of your proposal, with images and a CV, to find out if our space and concept would be a good fit for your work.
Please put "On View at Citizen" in the subject line.
