Artist's Statement

My work is comprised of maquettes, photographs of the maquettes in progress, and drawings incorporated into the photographs. I use scale and distance to manipulate point-of-view. The work is about my relationship to people and place and to daily experience and memories. These miniature narratives are placed within the context of man-made structures of colossal proportion and scientific explanations of natural phenomena. Like memory, my maquettes and photographs reduce these colossal and long-enduring structures to fragile and transitory symbols.
