Artist Statement
Through my work, I would like to convey the simplicity and strength that exists in the everyday ‘smallness’ of our lives. And how we, in spite of ourselves, collectively add to the vitality of each other and all that exists. The objects and materials that I use combine to create a narrative for my thoughts.  My technique of layering images allows me to continually explore a fluid subject matter seemingly without end.  Each object has its own identity and weight but one that evolves with a changing perspective. These objects  possess a stillness, held together between gravity velocity and mystery. From this place I am looking,  perhaps, for moments,  strange and beautiful, that open between things and allow a separation from  ourselves. The elegance of human existence.  A collective vitality.
