STATEMENT: My work focuses on the theme of the home and finding a place for myself within it. The imagery I use questions ideas about interior and exterior space and my interactions within it. I often recreate the environments I inhabit through obsessive mark making in drawing and installation processes. Physically, this manifests through two-dimensional and three-dimensional environments. In my two- dimensional settings, I use panel or paper to drawn on or manipulate with ink, paint, graphite, dirt, spray paint or screen printing processes. My three-dimensional environments allow for me to create installations by building out home interiors and priming each surface to create a new blank palette for my drawn hatch marks. My interiors then become interactive and function as a living drawing.
