I explore separation and interconnectedness by photographing everyday happenings and materials.

I focus on the visible remnants left by people and nature, witnessing and imagining the unseen or unacknowledged actions that leave traces.

I observe inside my home and surrounding environments, finding still lifes of children’s drawings and toys, a spider’s web holding debris, and piles of rock and rubber.

I compose conceptually on repetition, accumulation, and the impact of external forces by pouring boxes of Cheerios cereal until overflowing, inflating dozens of balloons to watch their deflating textures, and placing popsicles on concrete to melt in the summer heat.

All things feel beyond my control, yet I am compelled to adapt. Pausing in these moments, I am searching for what I can choose and what I can change.
