new work

Being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse makes relationships complicated. I make art work about my relationships so that I can separate myself from my perceptions and look at them objectively to better learn from them. I use photography as a way to remember my friends, experiences, and lovers not only through my own eyes but through the infallible memory of the camera.
My use of the camera is twofold, primarily I photograph people because I want to remember and love them. Secondarily because I find myself surrounded by them and don’t know what to do, using my camera like a defensive weapon to simultaneously hold them captive and push them away.

My work is a way for me to visually sort out my thoughts and feelings, while I go through the slow process of emotional maturation after being stunted by my personal history of abuse.
