 “When you walk into a room and you smell perfume there is no one there but you know someone has been there. When you see how feet have worn a path before you have followed it. When you feel the smoothness of a rock as people take their moment. Hearing the echoes of voices in the distance.  The human’s spirit deserves to be celebrated.”

 “We are all the same, to notice our similarities is to celebrate it in others. It is to celebrate ourselves and each other as being human.”

 “My work is more about your being than it is about my seeing, although it is a product of my seeing. I’m also interested in the sense of presence in space; that is space where you feel a presence, almost an entity — that physical feeling and power that a being can give.”

“For me, it’s about my commitment to making something, what I’ll do to make it, and really wanting to make something that the viewer and participate will feel in their own body, when they look at what happens they become consumed in and by the work.”

“My work is situated within a political framework; about individuals and social commentary, about our dialogue with the communities we inhabit, about not knowing the answer, about observing life and translating those observations into a narrative which reflects and explores the environments we all exist in and for.”

 

“My inspiration comes from those that surround me, the good, the bad, the old, the young, the engaged, and the disengaged”

“How true it was that one needed to be seen by others to be sure of one’s own existence”
