artist statement

I believe that human relationships live somewhere between fantasy and reality--that each bond maintains a profound truth of the connection alongside an impossible ideal of the relationship. The space between these worlds is blurry and the place where memories thrive. Our memories are born in this space, a mix of truth and fiction, swirled together until it tastes just right. These luxurious concoctions, while delicious, are inherently unreliable. In this series I am exploring the in-between world of my own relationship with my sister with all of it's deceptions and marvels.
