“I believe that art heals and also leads our way to understanding. The motif of the map and of movement is a thread through much of my work, as is a poetic approach to image-making. Through the creation of books, collages, and singular photographic images, I strive to create a pause, a moment, and an opportunity for reflection. Threading my way between the technical and the philosophical, I make quiet work that beckons viewers to participate and contemplate.”
