Artist Statement

I am interested in documenting the complexities of issues related to female identity, popular culture and kitsch. I create photo-based works. I make large-scale, 30”x40" still life photos using objects from 99 cents stores. A current project is entitled "Can You Dig It? A Chromatic Series of Floral Arrangements." It is a series of 40" x 30" photographs of floral arrangements that I have created. Each explores a different color. This project investigates ideas related to the natural and artificial, high art/low art and personal taste. It is also influenced by my love of funk music.
