STATEMENT

Using film and lens-based media, I make pictures and films. Drawn to the elusive qualities of a space, whether in nature or an interior place, I have grown to observe and absorb its mood and atmosphere, similarly to the ways in which film absorbs and is imprinted by light. 

With a camera, I aim to capture certain feelings within a space, maybe projections of my mood or my response to its respective history, whether known or unknowable, much in the same way cinema represents visual manifestations of fantasy worlds.

My choice and treatment of materials are bound in layers of Freud's theories of the uncanny, animism, and femininity, and my mergers of archetype and metaphor are engaged with an ongoing dialogue with images -- both real and imagined -- we associate with history, memory, and identity.
