Artist Statement :
“My work focuses on presenting narratives based on family history,
world history and natural history. The objects and textures I use
bring forth a time and memory that is unique to each person’s own
experience. Every piece is created with the intention of invoking a
sense of the familiar, inviting the viewer to recall an experience,
reflect on a by gone era or re-imagine a distant landscape.”
