Artist Statement & Biography
My collage-based work re-contextualizes found and personal images to form narratives reminiscent of life expectations, outcomes, and potential. I gather reference materials from contemporary and vintage sources and am interested in how our exposure to these media images affects our perception of our own lives. I strive to keep the work open to interpretation while wrapped in nostalgia, curiosity, and desire, among other emotions.
