I make art about the chaos and dysfunction of contemporary life. With an emphasis on domestic chaos and female identity, my work challenges the myth of domestic bliss. Embracing diverse media, my work includes installation, sculpture, mixed media painting and collage, as well as photography.

The use of found objects is integral to my installation and sculptural works. Recycling utilitarian objects, I create sculptural forms from materials such as discarded clothing, kitchenware, dead flowers, and broken glass. While some of these materials are transformed or deconstructed, others are left in their raw state. Often the work takes the form of grotesque female figures. Distended, entangled, and sometimes literally left hanging, these pieces reflect the struggle women face in constructing and guarding their identities.

In my digital photographs, my sculptures are introduced into a two-dimensional landscape where they are clearly out of place. They become actors in narratives involving friendly visitors or slightly perturbed outsiders. At other times their roles are those of victim or aggressor.

My mixed media paintings and collage also use found objects and recycled materials, such as shredded paper and sponges, to create unexpected textural surfaces. Recently I’ve begun to manipulate photographs, both digitally and with the application of paint and other media, to create fantastical landscapes.

A rabid mix of colors and forms, all of my work evokes a gritty playfulness, while its energetic construction mirrors my interior chaos and the exterior turmoil of my life as a woman, a wife, a mother, and an artist.
