Although not directly representational, my work is informed by place-based patterns (maps, landscapes, houses) and my relationships to the many places I’ve called home. Utilizing repetitive processes and creating collections of subtly unique multiples, I depict and memorialize this overlap between mental and physical space – where landscape, architecture and emotion blur, scale is unimportant, space is indistinguishable, and materials often take on new or unexpected roles.
I consider each piece a small monument, both personal and universal.
