My work explores inner states of being and the contradictory feelings that exist within us. We can be one thing on the surface and something altogether different within. We feel private, yet exposed; we feel energized, yet possess an inner stillness; we constantly question, yet feel sure. I’m fascinated by our relationship to the universe and the divine. My works are meditations on our never ending desire to evolve.
I often juxtapose elements or disparate locations that don’t co-exist in the real world, but feel right at home in the new worlds I create. I put the completed photomontage onto aluminum, allowing the silvery metal to show through my imagery. The aluminum’s shimmering reflective quality becomes an additional dimension, helping to remind us that the universe contains infinite possibilities.
