I am a mixed media artist, almost always in conversation with photography. I often use found scenes or objects, taken anywhere from walking on the beach or going to get coffee as either inspiration or as the subject of a photograph. A lot of my projects (both works I make, and shows I curate) exist at the intersection of political wrongs and joyful aesthetics. I like to take things completely out of context and connect them with something you probably know, in order to draw in the viewer and get my points across. I like for the viewer to have a tiny clue of what they are looking at. My titles often feed information to my viewers, using graphics or typography, like the artist Barbara Kruger and Shepard Fairey. Many of my projects are based in narrative, for example, Pain is Pain is an installation about the stigmatization especially of women in areas of mental health and substance use and misuse. I used my own prescription leaflets to make bedding and hung posters made from enlarged tattered postcards from my childhood bedroom, of Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland with the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper ,1892, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. We miss so much looking at our own special data feeds, looking down with headphones on going to work or where ever, not connecting with each other or our surroundings. This has become extreme with the COVID 19 Pandemic 2021. I want to display images that can evoke emotion and unite us.
