I assemble my works digitally from photos of my ancestors
and from my expanding archive of over 70,000 photos.
It’s all about remix.
I’m on a constant photographic scavenger hunt, outfitting
ancestors with backdrops, sidekicks and belongings.
I print my work myself in small editions on archival photo paper
with pigment inks.
My images are quirky visual narratives about psychological
predicaments. I especially like a good plight.
My art leans toward surrealism, as it has odd juxtapositions,
non-sequiturs, and an element of surprise.
My work content mirrors personal, political and global
situations – in a sly way.
My work is a packrat’s nest of things that are deeply a part
of being alive:
curiosity, humor, fear, rescue, individuality, absurdity.
