I work predominantly with ephemeral and vernacular imagery, mixed media, and alternative photography. Process, intention and the internal dialogue between the viewer and the artwork are of the greatest interest to me. My creative approach begins with investigation ranging from personal topics to daydreams and abstract ideas. Journaling, collecting, reimagining and reinterpreting are techniques I am drawn to, and which scaffold my process.

As a lifelong Alaskan, my creative process has been strongly influenced by my relationship with light. Alaska’s wild swings of light and darkness imprinted on me at an early age, nurturing an appreciation and understanding of the emotional power of light. I use this familiarity to suffuse my work with deep shadows, soft glowing light, and brilliant shine.
