Artist Statement

My practice investigates a place that is forever changing and the remain. Through exploring the everyday and documenting my surroundings I feel that there is more to say beneath the surface. No matter how subtle things may appear or how temporary, we now live in heightened times that reveal. I want my response to be a place of reflection, a place that I capture and a place that discovers.  There is something to locate in these moments that leave. 

We carry a piece of time everywhere
