For years my work has focused on representing acute details of my everyday life. Past work combines collaged found materials with painted imagery, collected or photographed within the coarse of my daily routines. In a sense I was creating personal journals of particularly mundane aspects of my life. With an interest in elevating the banal and celebrating routine, several bodies of work formed.
With increased opportunity to travel I have began creating “Wanderlust” projects. Using the sensibilities learned from representing my life I have begun to document the peculiarities of daily life in other countries. I hope for my deep feeling of wanderlust to manifest as a celebration of the diversity of the collective mundane.
Aesthetically I am interested patterning, fragmentation, spatial relationship and subject-object correlation. I am drawn to the order and predictability of repetition and pattern juxtaposed with the unpredictability found in fragmentation.
