My work is about human connections punctuated by physical distance and seperation by time. Thoughts and observations about universal human characteristics create the impulse to make an object, and in this way the work is a visual footprint of my thinking. My paintings, sculpture, and installations explore light, space, and layering, while visually allude to the power of human relationships, the passage of time, and my place within that continuum. Objects such as rope, thread, paper, wax, and lace, together with repetition and the use of words, often find a home in my art. These elements are metaphors for human connections and memories held together over time. My works are enduring conversations about relationships - both literal and visual - while simultaneously celebrating the fortitude of the human spirit.
