"My installation, Wild Life, is an attempt to process some of my thoughts on what I have seen. I want to make my own wild space for animals and wild life. As in my previous work, I am using a palette of recycled materials from my everyday life. My investigation is ongoing. As I write this, I see a hummingbird feasting on the flowers in the Rose of Sharon outside my window. This morning, I found a mouse nest in the shed where I store my art materials. I feel thankful for all the signs of wild life around me."
