Artist Statement:

My art practice investigates diverse, interdependent, and symbiotic relationships within natural and manmade environments.  Fascinated by alternative realities, disorientation, and flight, I amalgamate disparate experiences to create new narratives, perspectives, and theories.  The goal is to identify how patterns and symbols of influence impact perception, social behavior, institutions, history, and truth.

Mediums are repurposed by altering function to explore identity, ideology, and inequality.  As a multidisciplinary artist, my practice incorporates drawings, sculpture, site-specific installations, objects, digital, video, and audio.  Inspiration, investigation, research, writing, and discovery dictate the final form.
