Artist Statement
I am drawn to the periphery of places, calling attention to what is not there as well as what may be.

Images such as buildings, cars, and distant landscapes come from sites I have seen while trying to get somewhere.  In "The world as it goes by series," they float in and out of sculptures traced from my car windows. I am also interested in layering these tiny images in large-scale drawings a that become continuous landscapes. Areas of density and confusion are contrasted with areas of rest as a means of exploring daily experience. These line drawings were placed onto my studio ceiling where the wood grain suggested landscape patterns and then re-introduced into the outside world by superimposing them onto vistas and tiny spaces. Images play with perspective and scale in a way that often converts the distant and unnoticed to the up close and intimate.

Process is key to my work, using a variety of materials as a way of documenting experience and contrasting the stereotypical with the unique. Be it an instant, the mundane, or the imagined, I experience moments through my process, slowing down or revisiting forms in order to perceive that which would normally go unnoticed. I am interested in exploring the gap between where one is physically and where one longs to be.
