Statement

New Hampshire raised and California residing, I often find myself longing for anything resembling weather. The Forecast Series grew organically out of my craving for the psychological weight weather carries; a reflection of my geographic move and seasons missed. Drawing a parallel to the affect of hearty weather, I try and utilize the inherent properties of my materials: the paper soaks, warps and stretches under the weight of water; altered and stained as a trace to the dip-dying process. My process is often intuitive and organic, riddled with happy accidents that make this series truly one of a kind.
