My work explores perception and persistence. What do we create and what fragments remain? What are the indelible effects of our actions? My current body of work has been inspired by recent medical issues, which have required numerous tests and evaluations. I am creating bold graphic prints and detailed sculptures to interpret the interior space of the body, its function and fragility.

Educated as a figurative artist in the tradition of working from life, I am playing with the idea of seeing what cannot be seen with our eyes, but only viewed through machines and instruments. In developing the work, I have been asking myself many questions: How do we measure what we cannot see? How do we fight or accept the frailty of the body? How do we translate trauma? Creating this work has allowed me to gain an awareness of my inner physical self and to interpret and ultimately cope with my own impermanence.
