My creative practice is interdisciplinary, utilizing multimedia, and new genres. I am interested in the fictitious nature of moving and still images - how art can reveal the unreal and imaginary spaces of the human psyche. I look for magic and myth within the common place and explore the unknown. I utilize sculpture to transform tangible objects into a representational fiction and depict a warped mythology.
