Artist Statement:

My work evolves from photos of common objects and scenes from my everyday life and experiences. Objects familiar to most are digitally manipulated and presented in a unique context. As a two time cancer survivor, my impulse to document and catalog both past and current events is strong. The act of organizing my imagery serves not only as a tool for my art making but a way for me to recall and remember moments in my life. Utilizing my inkjet printer, my life spills onto the media as I layer the cropped and deconstructed digital fragments of my story within applications of inkjet, block printing ink and other materials. As I blend abstraction with reality, it is important for me to anchor each work with a recognizable image that suggests a narrative. A common identifiable object becomes the catalyst as it morphs from an expected pictorial to an unexpected abstraction. I make sense of the subjective through thoughtful  use of structure, form, and color.
