In the last few years I have found ways to make artistic practice a natural element of my life alongside family and work. My art projects merge with the trips to nature that I take all year round. I go fishing, hunting, berry-picking, or just walk alone or with others.
The essential part of my environmental art is the travelled journey and the representations of it. I am fascinated by the questions relating to the site-specificity of art, the biographical nature of routes and locations, transformation of the environment, and the role and agency that an individual and a community have in that transformation.
