Artist Statement

My work deals with ephemerality and memory. I create series that reinvent moments in time dealing with nostalgia and how we as a culture try to recreate moments and relive past experiences to extend the life of our singular experiences, in which we do not want to let go. I use these moments as ways to connect with people, inviting viewers to interact with my work divorcing the memories from their original intent to create new moments in time in which we can cherish.

Most of my ideas stem from single drawings that become prints, which then turn into sculptures, photographs and or installations. Each series usually culminates into a show, exhibition, or event; I like the idea of the art becoming a moment, which it will only be visible to experience in person for short periods. Part of the show or event are left as memorabilia of what has conspired, but the art work its self, individually is not my concern but the event of all the works together in one space, for one particular moment in time is part of the work itself. This idea allows me to move through different bodies of work, and ideas, and has kept me prolific in art marking and has become a big part of my process.
