ARTIST’S STATEMENT

An image distorted in space and time – visceral, sculptural, three dimensional, spatial, dynamic, subtle, fragile, poetic. I am looking for ways to express my inner landscape in the outside world. My work is less about what one sees then about the feeling that it leaves behind. My aesthetic training began with dance, transitioned to choreography and expanded to photography, video, text, mixed media and performance art.
