Artist Statement



From the places I have called home to the notion of the sea, I build collections of images and objects, often overlapping the digital with the real. Using these collections, I string together poetic narratives that instill a feeling of melancholy and loss. These feelings highlight the experience of displacement in an ongoing attempt to define the nebulous idea of home as constructed by the things within it, the buildings that frame it, and the memories that surround it.
