Artist Statement

As a visual artist, I am interested in exploring issues regarding sexuality, femininity, and performance through portraiture. I am interested in the way we perform for the world and how we change when performing for a camera. I am often photographing strangers and collecting my experiences with them. I'm intrigued that I can spend a fleeting moment with these strangers but that their photographs stay with me and I reflect on them for years to come.
