Artist Statement

I am interested in circumstances and settings that provide inspiration for improvised play, imitation and generosity, as well as ways in which these exchanges affect identity. In my work, which includes watercolor, drawing and interactive projects, I seek to qualify the subtle complex gestures - 'slips' - that pass quickly between people in self-conscious and unguarded moments. Slips manifest as expressions of tenderness, mimicry and private reverie that belie secret desires just as they elude physical staying power and memory. For me, these exchanges, whether perceived or imagined signify the substance for meaningful human connection.
