My work tells the stories of female figures of strength, focusing on those who work with their hands; keeping alive the artifacts of humanity. I finds great power in the passing down of trades from generation to generation, commanding a presence and pride as craft-makers and workers of dying traditions. Incorporating patterns I find in nature, I reflects on the relationship of people and their environments as times change and we change. 

Through my work, I try to recreate the emotional content of a time, place or face that I fear will be lost in the near future.  I am interested in capturing the odd experiences of the human condition.  The simple, quiet moments between large events.  The impacting details that make up life that are easily forgotten.
