About My Work:

It is within the landscape that I see myself, reflected. I seek out the relationship between the natural and the artificial; between the familiar and the strange; between the safe and the unsafe spaces. From personal inquiries into memories of place, I am investigating the ephemeral nature of “home” and how our human experience parallels with natural phenomena of the landscape.

I combine the images of my childhood home with memories of the environments in which I have resided, resulting in landscapes that merge personal observations of surroundings, experiences of relocation, and displacement into a new territory.

I choose to work in various materials, incorporating drawing media, painting, embroidery, and sculptural elements into my pieces. Each offers it’s own history, possibilities, and limitations.
