Artists' Statement:
I'm in love with moments. Visual moments, captured by the lens. Imagined moments, made tangible in assemblage. Soft moments, shared with a Snuggle.

I find photographic moments walking through urban landscapes; I'm particularly pulled to odd juxtapositions and bizarre, unexpected finds (who knew there were so many tiny statues in cities?!?) In my mixed-media assemblage and box constructions, I create tangible moments from the lives of tiny creatures and dreams. Snuggles were inspired by a moment with a dear friend, and are soft things that snuggle you back. In all of these moments, my focus is on the stories and feelings we share as we interact with each other and the world around us.

Favorite artists: Frida Kahlo, Andy Goldsworthy, Jim Henson, Joseph Cornell, Rachel Mello
