My concerns about the natural world influence my work as I endeavor to make sense of the “both/and” that is contemporary life, the beauty and chaos inherent in each moment.

Exploring themes of perception, adaptation and transformation, my work often inverts form and content as a response to our changing environment. My years as a dancer moving intuitively through space developed a heightened sense of physicality, informing my photographic process of digital manipulation, physical intervention and presentation. I offer different yet related bodies of work that shift between my alarm and disconnect to finding balance and healing in the beauty that remains.

I think of my work as a visual tone poem, at times engaging image, texture, words, music, form and/or movement. Current work takes form as archival digital prints and handmade artist books.
