I've always loved a good story. A lifelong communications professional and speech writer, I was always instinctively drawn to metaphors and employed them in my written work to make ideas really 'stick' with an audience.
Today as a visual artist, I'm telling my own stories. I'm intrigued by the past lives of found objects and my practice involves collecting, sorting, and manipulating materials to discover patterns and meaning, and rearranging them into works of social commentary and autobiographical themes.
By harnessing the non-verbal communication power of quotidian objects, I aim to create metaphorically and emotionally dense visual stories that reflect our shared humanity and stop viewers in their tracks.
