Artist Statement

I record the minute, yet extraordinary occurrences in the day, that most may overlook. A snippet of overheard conversation, a typo on a menu, sing song ways to remember an important date…these are my banal moments, yet worthy of recording. It is my attempt to punctuate coincidence, to immortalize the millisecond, and in turn, offer the viewer to meditate on their story.

I utilize the paradoxes of humor and irony to juxtapose sincerity with life’s absurdities. Currently, I hand dye stretched panels and translate the moments of the day with an embroidery machine.
