Artist Statement

My work utilizes architectural spaces and objects to explore individual and collective memory. The spaces I select as sources for my work are often places in which I have physically lived, worked, seen, or experienced on some level. I respond to these spaces through direct observation, through photographs (found or personally taken), and/or from scale models I create. The artistic method I use for my work ranges from oil paint to printmaking and occasionally sculpture.

In this practice I am most interested in transformation. I enjoy beginning with a space, taking apart its elements, understanding what it is about that space I find interesting, and then bringing the elements back together. At times, I return to my memory of a space repeatedly. Each time I make an effort to shift my perspective of that place, or request an alternative viewpoint outside of myself, in order to see the space as if I were experiencing it for the first time.
