Artist Statement

My interdisciplinary conceptually driven work strives to articulate the American perspective. Although the United States is vast and a toss salad of cultures, beliefs, and races, there is an underlying attitude that is distinctly from this country. It is this point of view that I aim to capture. In a land known for abundance and driven by consumerism, we are inodated and influenced by images and material goods. My goal is to play upon the symbolism of the familiar and subvert it by juxaposition. It is through these new and unlikely combinations that I can begin to expose the common thread that runs through a land known for its diversity and extremes, thus allowing me to better understand my culture and ultimately myself.
