Artist Statement
Impermanence, transience, the potential of change and the role of chance in its origin and outcome are central themes of my work.  Myth oftentimes serves as subject and trace images from the landscape offer inspiration.  In my most recent work subject and process have become inseparable: rather than document what has been, my photographic collages and mixed media monotypes give shape to change and are shaped by it in turn.  Drawn upon, deconstructed, reduced at times to a line alone or built up layer by layer, the photograph is both palimpsest and ground. My interest lies in the dynamic interplay between residue and mark, evidence and response, memory remade by memory: clarity arrived at through chance and complication.
