Artist's Statement, 2011


My work draws attention to idiosyncratic things in the world. By examining mundane situations, I encourage viewers to reconsider ironies found in every day life. While I suggest a point of view, ideally my work simply poses questions for the viewer. I select subjects and themes that I connect with personally, such as loneliness and awkwardness, but that are archetypal in nature. I explore the ways societal values dictate certain behaviors in individuals as well as how individuals can subvert socially codified behaviors regarding gender, class and culture. In particular, I’m interested in examining how geography affects people; my experiences living in the Midwest, the East Coast and Europe have heavily influenced my work.
