Artist Statement

My art stems more from an emotional response rather than a cerebral one. I don’t interpret but rather bear witness to fragments of the world and its people. In my books, I have found a way to give a voice to the unheard and a face to the unseen. My images bear witness to what exists without judging. 

My personal work has more to do with self-expression. I capture an instant in time and hold on to it until I find a way to transform it to fit my private world. It is a way to hold on to the passage of time and control it. I can hold on to my loved ones, linger in quiet spaces and cling to life a bit longer.
