Artist Statement

My studio practice drifts through a variety of processes with the interrogation of recollection as a constant. In thinking about how our sense of self is connected to our environment I use personal connections to places, the history of objects and familiar mechanical processes as a starting point in my work. I am interested in how recalling a moment, space or experience, diluting it and filtering it through a mental sieve, can create new poetry in what we find important.
