: : ARTIST STATEMENT : : Awaken your senses. Dark soil wrapped in white sheets, bricks suspended in air by delicate sheer ribbon, or a red-feathered pillow fight in a white room. I expose the buried memories that everyday objects hold, and in the transformation of spaces I create experiences where the viewer’s interaction becomes the art itself. I have a passion for the grandiose, the dramatic, and the theatrical. Spectators are exposed to rituals, collective memories, and metaphors. But like memories, these experiences will not last. Installations and performances are ephemeral. all that remains are memories, documentation, and artifacts. From bricks to pillows, I Create Unforgettable Experiences.
