Artist Statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist with a current focus on paper collage. I parallel paper materials from different time periods to illustrate imagery of new realities and ideas. Primarily sourcing imagery the media uses to shape society, I explore how these images shape collective identity, and attempt to harness and redirect their intensions. My work seeks to reveal historical patterns, dissect current ideas, and tap collective premonition. Recently, the pace of time has seemed to shift dramatically. Using found paper allows me utilize it as a timestamp, a time capsule and a physical documentation of that shared experience.
