Studio 15

My work utilizes architectural elements, natural settings and objects to explore individual and collective memory.  I respond to these spaces through direct observation, through photographs (found or personally taken), and/or from scale models I create from the space. The artistic method I employ for these responses ranges from paint to printmaking and occasionally sculpture.

In this practice I am most interested in transformation. I enjoy beginning with a space, taking apart its elements, understanding what it is about that space I find interesting, and then bringing the elements back together. Through this process I can find distance between myself and the space and uncover a response that stands separate from its beginning with only a mere nod to its roots.
