My work investigates the gap between the internal landscape of memory and the external one around us. Landscapes become metaphors for meditation and trigger the story into motion, confusing the border between real and imagined.  Memory often distorts our images.
 
Repitition gives that dizzying feeling you get when you watch waves or look down on water from a boat or dock.  Installation and presentation is as important as image in my work.
 
All my work is about locating and responding to memory in the corporeal body, where it has both a psychological and physical dimension. Often constructed of numerous small parts in an attempt to invoke the layered strata of memory and I am interested in how the intersection of images make up a narrative. Water is not a specific body of water, rather it is The Sea. Home is not a specific house, landscapes often don’t have information identifying place, but rather it is about the act of driving past a place and viewing it peripherally.  The earth becomes a living body.  Trees become thought, oceans become breath, and every thing holds memory. Travel through the landscape is a momentary pause, a chance to think about what is internal.
