Artist Statement

As an artist and filmmaker, the complexity of childhood pulls me in for another look. For several years I have investigated the idea of self as it is constructed through language and communication in early childhood. This study continues. In my newest work, I have discovered the distortion that occurs with childhood revisited. Bearing in mind the power of costumes, rituals, and environments, narratives develop around the relationship these have to my subjects. My own experiences are measured throughout these assessments.

Some of my digital video projects also include a wide range of environmental examinations. These focus on the influence of the day-to-day and profound effects of what we take in mostly unaware.
