The main thread that connects all of my work is my love of storytelling. I am fascinated by the telling and retelling of things and how a story can be transformed each time it’s retold. My process for exploring an idea is completely intuitive. I see, read, or hear something and it somehow resonates with one of my own stories or memories. From there it’s really just a small leap to begin thinking about how to turn ideas into images.
My current studio practice is now moving into directions which include sculpture and assemblage. I’m intrigued by the raw visceral properties of found objects. I’m fascinated by how simply combining these objects creates powerful narrative possibilities. But, ultimately I’m drawn to ancient mythologies and magical-spiritual belief and the question of their place and relevance in contemporary culture.
