The content of my work reflects my own childhood narrative and its metaphorical relationship with the story of the growth of America as a nation. Physically, the work is process-driven, and involves a mixture of many artistic disciplines: drawing, painting, sculpture, paper-craft, theatre lighting, and photography. I work only from my memory, which is in a constant state of flux. The status of particular memories is altered by every new experience, to the point where even the mundane can be reformed into the epic. All of my work is made with the intention to examine what remains of the actual, reveal the process of alteration, and explore the possibilities of the fantastic. Every remembrance is a reinvention, and reality is not fixed, but in process.
