As an artist, Jodi uses art to examine relationships with Nature and inspects place/space ontology stemming from an embedded walking art praxis. Though formally trained as a painter, her artworks manifest via whatever form the message requires: paint, installation, digital photography, text. Recreationally, Jodi spends her free time photographing UNESCO World Heritage Sites and has visited over 30 countries mostly as a solo-traveler.
