I try to make sense of the world by creating images about shared spaces, histories and social patterns. The studio is where I connect the personal to the political, and where I use my hands to make objects that help me understand my subject matter. My current focus is increasingly directed towards the more private sphere of the home where social expectations about identity and labor manifest in a multitude of ways. Staging broken dollhouse furniture from my childhood allows me to consider some of the mythologies embedded in these domestic surroundings. Ideas of homemaking, (and unmaking) are prompted by the small bits of furniture. But putting these together with other found and made elements allows me to also play with traditions of assemblage and the ready made, a juxtaposition that never fails to entertain me.
