about

As a visual artist, my work is often perceived as representational, but in truth at its most fundamental level it is communicative. I work in various media—from painting to photography to sculpture—and each of my projects deals with the tools we use to communicate who we are, what we want, and what we believe in.

For my Habitats portrait series, I photograph subjects with the personal items that best communicate their private lives. In making the private visible to the public, the series engages in a process of unseating a culture of shame. My more playful #SelfieThrones series is an installation that grows and shifts and at times invites the participation of other artists. It invites people from any background to join me in my studio and take a photograph on an ornate throne, ennobling people who may not feel noble, beautiful, or even acceptable, and welcoming those who otherwise might not have contact with the arts.

My current project, Warrior Women, directly engages with issues of gender discrimination, and seeks to communicate the stories of women in my community who have fought patriarchy in big and small ways.

Through my work, I hope to create a sense of empowerment through communication in the face of cultures of silence.
