I'm an artist and educator living in Houston, Texas. My practice delves into the politics of place. My subject is landscape. I create environmental interventions and installations indoors and outdoors. I'm interested in behavioral aesthetics and art as social practice. My photographs are used as source material. I took this snapshot of a peculiar Texas custom we have when the weather gets cold. Freezing temperatures don't threaten very often, but when they do we wrap our outdoor plants in plastic wraps to keep them warm.
