Artist's Statement


My recent work focuses on combining elements of narration and abstraction. Using pattern, mark making and collage, I have been integrating found text and hybrid/abstracted human figures in static poses. These pieces explore questions of identity, story, and how we present to the outside world. I am interested in the way stories are told and implied, assumptions and miscommunication, as well as the tension between expectation and desire. I am a deep lover of fairy tales and fantasy, and am interested in playing with the metaphors of animals and how we know ourselves as humans.
