Artist's Statement

All of my work is about locating and responding to memory in the corporeal body, where it has both a psychological and physical dimension. Often the pieces are constructed of numerous small parts in an attempt to invoke the layered strata of memory and I am interested in how intersection of images that make up a narrative.  In my work sea is not a specific body of water, rather it is The Sea. Home is not a specific house, industrial and “Drive by” landscapes often don’t have information identifying place, but rather it is about the act of driving past a place and viewing it peripherally.  The earth becomes a living body.  Trees become thought, oceans become breath, and every thing holds memory. Travel through the landscape is used as a momentary pause, a chance to think about what is internal.
