Born in Atlanta, GA, USA, I currently live in Vantaa, Finland

I see my artwork as investigations, conducted through moving images, three dimensional sculptures and still images. I investigate ideas of looking and seeing in a theoretical sense and as a physical act – exploring how we see more than our eyes do. Our eyes can deceive us- the brain plays a significant role in creating what we “actually see.” I am interested in the different forms of visual communication used during the lifecycles of my artworks (coming up with the idea, the process of making the work, and the final image(s)). I exhibit work inspired by these different stages.
