Artist Statement:


    I use the computer to create seamless environments out of incongruous elements, including flatbed-scanned images of objects, appropriated photography, and three-dimensional imagery. My digital montage process is analogous to the activity of sewing.

    I use fabrics and other materials to redress and transform figures, and to create an illusory narrative space. I’m inspired to use a lot of my imagery for the texture it brings to my compositions. Images of fabric, papers, and organic materials create a sensuous tactileness in my prints. I stitch together disparate elements to create a rich embroidered tapestry whose decorative qualities I sometimes use to make subversive content more palatable.
