STATEMENT

My work deals with my travels through everyday life. I pay close attention to each step I take as I journey down the many paths set before me. These “roads” are sites we all travel across in our lifetime, and I use these experiences to highlight the physical and non-physical memories of each location. Evidence of the history found in each object can be seen in the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death associated with the memories we attach to the site.
