Influenced by my experiences as a woman, daughter, wife, and mother, I am intrigued by the inner tensions that result when socially prescribed constructs for these roles challenge personal narratives, both real and imagined, and the transformative nature of self-perception that inevitably occurs over time.
I feel compelled to explore the relationship between female identity and its representations in society, taking a special interest in memory, privacy, intimacy and sexuality. I see the mind and body as more than thought and feeling but as something more expansive which is distributed in the world and projected onto objects.
I incorporate these material forms as markers of time, place, and personal significance, using photography to create a visual language for musings of worth, vulnerability, and power. Inspired by Virginia Woolf, my practice originates in a deeply personal space. I become my own witness shifting autobiographical explorations into a shared female experience.
