The momentary layering and editing of the subconscious and conscious, ...this is the path in which I manuever throughout my work. I aspire towards ridding of excess so as to feel closer to the truth of each moment. The call and response of the materials used and the continual pull towards relinquishment of a controlled, absolute plan are the main steps in my journey. The broad range of topics that surface in the work attempt to spur commentary on aspects of our lives, such as: environmental and industrial juxtapositions, food politics, word play, natural disaster, sustainable and simplified living, maturation of body and mind, and relationships in community. Through these subjects, I seek clarity in our relationships with one another.
