Artist Statement


I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist focusing on conceptual photography. My photographic work incorporates aspects of performance, sculpture, installation and constructions. Using conceptual self-portraiture as a vehicle to share stories from my life, I make work that merges my love for fabrication and materials, with my visions and ideas in conceptual photography. My imagery is often infused with humor and wonder, ingredients that draw the viewer in, inviting them to linger and to have a dialogue with the work, and themselves.
