The fragility of the images and the playfulness with which they are constructed are in some ways at odds with the mundane nature of the materials and the self-reflection involved in the process of creating the works. The lack of bright colors and the consequent reliance on texture and composition reflect a reverence for the subtleties of everyday reality.
All of my works are purposely not titled. These images are intended to engage the curiosity of the viewer and to provoke responses and interpretations based on personal experience.
