I am a printmaker and new media artist who uses a variety of mediums to convey a variety of messages. My work utilizes appropriated images and objects relating to art history, popular media and consumer culture to create rough-hewn assemblages.  This collage sensibility reflects temporary solutions and failed ambitions within a culture saturated with irony and perpetual innuendo.

 

My practice as a new media artist addresses artifice, awkward transitions, humor, gender and media representation through video, installation and performance.  As a printmaker I use a variety of traditional and experimental techniques to address formal and conceptual topics pertaining to illusion, construction, failure and nostalgia.  Ultimately, I am studio artist compelled to create images that locate an ambiguous degree of resolution through applied awareness of content and form.
