Artist Statement
My work is installation based, incorporating drawing, painting, sewing and sculpting. The installations evolve through a set of rules and offer multiple experiences through minimal means. Typically an accumulation of carnal imagery is arranged to house the psyche. These images unite binary opposites like defiance with conformity, male with female, right with wrong, and external with internal.
