I look for the brightest shades of odd and bizarre in the gray areas of everyday existence. Once I find it, I can point my camera at it and steal a bit of its shine. My work encompasses fragility, almost as if made of porcelain. The opaque dreamscape detaches one from the world to experience dormant poetic expression.
In combining my photography, painting, and poetry into printmaking, the process becomes a therapeutic way to relay my emotional state into a tangible form.
I'm inspired by my prose and the human body. I have a strong interest in the human experience, and the only way I can fully understand is through my own experience. Provocative at first, yet with a longer glance one can see concealment and anonymity. Encouraging the viewer to look deeper.
I obscure my emotions behind material, art processes, and my own writing. I achieve my work through various photographic and printmaking methods. The final result is a faded, monochromatic, and jagged-edged piece. The greatest benefit of this technique is the unpredictable nature of how each piece will evolve- for that is the art in itself...
