Statement

Sites like Tumblr and Facebook scroll in an infinite monologue and I am saturated with disconnected visual information. In contrast, collaging found images together in order to build or grow something new becomes about dialogue and looking for relationships. Paper, ink and colored pencil are multiple voices that ultimately merge into a singular, complex personality. As the work spontaneously unfolds a narrative does as well and like a child I am alive in the world of my own imagination.

Mobile phones have become an incubator for creative ideas and our eyes have grown accustomed to an esthetic of digital perfection. Beginning with a drawing created on my mobile phone, I work to translate digital light into paint. Through painting, I'm choosing to embrace the subtle irregularities of a hand-painted edge while embracing the crisp clarity of the digital.
