Artist Statement: My creative work is an investigation of narrative and how we locate ourselves within interlocking selves, memories and stories. Narratives have the power to help us understand our own existence as they transform everyday experience, just as the still life transforms the ordinary through the act of looking and seeing. My works investigate this concept through porcelain and wax objects, images drawn from photographs and found objects. I intend to draw attention to the complex nature of memory and allow viewers to place themselves within the works as they bring their own associations to the pieces themselves and consider the subjective nature of the past.

Artist Statement: The range of subjects of my work radiate out in concentric circles: from intimate friendships to global communities.  As an artist I am also playing the part of observer and documentarian.  In my current work I am reacting to the wisdom and ignorance of variously sized groups of people.  I am interested in the dynamics of social groups and how they often have larger social and political implications. This series of works considers what it means to feel a sense of belonging in a group and also what it means to feel like an outcast.  Individual members of each group both gain and lose from these dynamics.
