Artist Statement
My work explores the ways in which reality, memories, and sensory experiences can be manipulated, distorted, and obscured by mental illness.​ This fascination is rooted in the brain's storage and processing of this easily corruptible information. My prints and drawings highlight quiet moments that create tension between peacefulness and restlessness. ​Imagined spaces and recalled events become visual through layering images and collaging semi transparent visual elements. ​Methods of manipulation of these materials include chine colle, stacking different papers, stitching on the surface of an image, and the weaving of​ ​components​ together. The visual struggle of memory and reality is integral to the work; multiple perceptions can be experienced, albeit not at the same time.
