I am drawn to the periphery of places, calling attention to what is not there as well as what may be.
I work in series, documenting daily experience in multiple ways as a means of contrasting the stereotypical with the unique. Interior spaces, landscapes, and objects such as buildings, cars, and fire hydrants come from sites that I see on my daily journeys. Images play with perspective and scale in a way that often converts the distant and unnoticed to the up-close and intimate.
Be it an instant, the mundane, or the imagined, I experience moments through art-making in order to perceive that which may be overlooked. I am interested in exploring the gap between where one is physically and where one longs to be. Through this interest my work becomes a meditation on the untouchable.
