I document our conscious and unconscious desires while negotiating and navigating the private and public. Observing moments that serve as liminal spaces, I explore intuitive responses to my process in the form of recorded acts of memory and constructed spaces. 
Using photography, print, sculpture, and video, I examine constructs of space, the self, memory, and the gaze. I am continually exploring the varied ways we “see,” dependent on language, narrative, and context. Not seeking to “define,” but rather lend a possible read to these moments.

 Language of image, juxtaposition, layering, and re-recording expand meaning and perception.  I immerse myself in this concept and apply it in my art-encoded information and the creation of non-linear and abstract associations involving the "perceptual event" of experiencing signs and signifiers—as static and moving images.
