ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is created with the intention of defining a visual space that evokes emotions such as curiosity, intimacy, playfulness, and chance. Inspiration comes from the aesthetic of the modern market place found in places such as advertisements, apps, catalogs, and stores. Juxtaposing this aesthetic with glimpses of the artist hand signifies the importance of human contact in a culture that is becoming more and more communicative but ironically, less connected. The work encourages the viewer to bring their own experiences to an open ended dialogue, in which there is an implied invitation for them to become a part of the story.
