Ive always had a fascination with the public and private aspects of the home. Integrating photography, collage, painting and sculpture I make a visual experience that examines the places we live. My artwork uses representations of interiors and exteriors that are ripped, torn, folded, and crumpled, as well as objects from the home, to dissect aspects of public and private life. Ive developed a process of creation that embraces a lack of scheme and evolves into pieces I hadnt previously conceived. I see creating art as visual investigation, problem solving and discovery. My content and process address what the definition of a home is as it undergoes constant evolution.
In every home there exists the potential for connections between family, community, and culture - connections I use to inform my visual vocabulary. I look at every part of the house as an integral part of a bigger picture, from the way trim hugs a corner and conceals a seam, to the art piece that speaks to and about you. Every part can be an opportunity for your personal expression.
