Artist Statement

My work begins with an investigation of an idea or theme. This research leads me to choose my medium, and that in turn determines the physical aspects of the piece. As a result, the final form cannot be predicted: it exists above all as a record of my experience. While I might recycle – and thereby subvert – a found or common object, it is to re-impose the personal on an otherwise anonymous item. Currently, I am working on a multimedia installation that addresses the complex issues surrounding clean water access.
