This series of images that grew out of my connection to nature. To illustrate the discovery and illumination involved with this relationship, I collected and arranged pieces of the environment into mandalas or "maps of the universe". The earth art pieces are intentionally temporal in nature and serve as celebrations of these natural spaces. By photographing myself with in these arrangements my being becomes a part of the piece, highlighting the relationship of nature and the maker.
