About

Statement

My artwork strives to represent both the inner and outer realities of human existence. I am particularly interested in mental states such as anxiety, hope, anticipation, and despair- and the methods we employ to either alter or prolong these states. The cords, dolls, branches, and other images are not only metaphors for thought processes, but serve as problems in themselves to be solved, by myself as well as the viewer. In doing so, we are reminded of the almost constant battles we face within ourselves, while recognizing the shared commonality of those challenges.
