According to Hutton, earthquakes have been treated as miraculous catastrophes outside the ordinary course of nature and were taken as a sign of gods. Throughout history, we can come to realize the power of nature on the environment and people. Humans strive to shape and represent their environment but it has its own power that cannot be subjugated to human desires entirely. We have little control of the forces that shape and reshape out world, such as disasters and hurricanes. One prevailing question that arises in my mind is, ''How do we associate ourselves with one another knowing that all that we have in this lifetime is impermanent?" All that you have including your body will eventually wear off; whither away and cease to stay as a whole. I want to investigate this human condition through creating landscapes. The themes I work with include the seasonal changes and the different cycles of life such as birth, growth, reproduction, age, decay and rebirth. For inspiration, I enjoy looking through landscapes done in the 18th and 19th century by artists such as Casper David Friedrich and by Turner. I am described to be a Wabi-Sabi artist who finds beauty in the imperfect and flawed. I believe that beauty is found in every thing; that includes the various layers of process found in my work. Each layer contributes to the end product or wholeness of the piece. I aspire to emerge figures with the landscape in the near future.
