I am a collector of images, mining them for unexpected combinations.  In my artistic practice I choose to use photography to explore the relationships of images I observe and record, rather than its documentary aspect.  I often use translucent layers and collage to foster the illusion of space and the connections created.  The elements depicted may have a certain familiarity, but the composition often transcends the importance of their identification. These constructions and deconstructions focus on another aspect of my imagined reality.
 
Whether looking through the viewfinder of the camera, creating collages digitally or manipulating materials, I am drawn to the aspects that contain and formalize a space.  In a society where we are constantly bombarded by loud, disparate and raw imagery, I aim to create a calm and enchanting world, both within and outside the frame.
