Artist Statement

Distracted by creating my future in the design world, I neglected my art for quite some time. UP70194 numbers on a tanker are what inspired my return home. Home is not a place, rather memories of my life with others. My work is not about me or what I have experienced, it is about what I have seen. The moments I have captured and the memories that they trigger inside anyone who looks. I am drawn to the obvious, to the everyday, to the natural beauty and sometimes harsh reality that surrounds us. My intention is not to recreate existence of objects that I shoot, rather to encourage the image to be seen beyond our own obliviousness,

UP70194 resonates within me and is expressed naturally without thought and/or preconception in my work along with additional numbers and letters, no rhyme or reason simply inspiration from the basic learning most of us had in our early childhood. I also use vintage findings, old letters, images, and notes that are sometime collaged into the pieces and then resined for protection.
