We live in an ever-changing, uncontrollable reality. At times it becomes difficult to make sense of all that is happening within and outside of our present selves. I create objects to grapple with the philosophical quandaries life presents: How does one cope with anxiety on an individual, communal and global level? How can one find moments of clarity in the onslaught of visual information that our media-saturated society circulates? How can a reconsideration or revisualization of female archetypes bring about a deeper understanding of the role of women in our world? An interdisciplinary approach allows me to address these quandaries in the way I see fit. My responses vary from the immediate visual poetry of collage to the intricacies of creating a many-pieced character costume to the layered process of writing, building and rehearsing short performances. Each practice informs the others in the way many facets combine to create an identity. I am drawn to tactile materials and methods and am interested in the use of repurposed and found objects, adding layers of complexity and interconnection to the work. The questions may never be answered but my explorations are a personal leap forward into the perplexity of the previously unknown.
