artist statement

My work is born from a primal fascination with the body, and it’s physical, emotional, and spiritual presence in our world. A life spent travelling and moving from place to place, has led to an unrelenting desire to understand, become connected to, and interact with, my shifting surroundings. Often, this process can be challenging, inducing feelings of fear, anxiety, and a sense of unbelonging. To navigate these emotions, I use the recurring motif of the covered, disguised, or faceless figure. Photography is my primary tool to communicate my ideas, however I also implore video, sound, performance, writing, drawing, and sculpture.
