Since receiving her BFA in Photography from Arizona State University, she has explored a range of expression through photography, collage and jewelry making.
"I appreciate duality that most often the complexity of our emotions, perceptions, and thoughts are not perfectly contained within the meaning of language. I feel so much more can be shared without words, arising from what is there and what is not there; a hint of something, leading one to question. The "answer" or translation of my work lies within the viewer and I appreciate that.
I feel fulfilled by the realization that even I don’t know exactly what it means. Each image is a sliver of time, not really a place, fully; or an actual depiction of what may have happened or would come to happen. I like the lie of photography, and the transformation that the viewer corroborates when attempting to decipher meaning.
It's everything one thinks it could be and more. Difficult to decipher, these images signal a recall; familiar, yet uncanny. In my mind a latent image, a deja vu of sorts. Like quicksand, the deeper I fall into translation; the harder I fight futility. Vision is a language in itself."
