Artist Statement

My installations are unfinished fragments of moments in time and represent various stages of my own self realization. Influenced by everything I see, feel and experience each are constructed to represent the moments that have scarred my soul or lighten my load.  
 They are improvisational sites in which the constructed are used to remind, inspire, or question the viewers emotions & desires. Inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation relying on ones inner desires for beauty and poetics.
