"I choose to work with photography and film because I love technology and the advancements that it goes through every six months. In addition to my fascination with the ever advancing range of technology involved, I feel that my eyes are the most effective tool I have when creating art, and using a camera helps me show my audience how I see the world. My best work involves pairing photography and film with performance art. Even in my show, the main subject is myself. Performing in front of the camera allows me to show others how I view myself.
The last two years of my life have given me the content for this body of work. I lost my sister little less than two years ago. This has completely changed who I am as a person, and how I see life. My life transitioned from being focused on someone else’s needs and protection, to being about myself. After twenty years spent making sure someone else was safe, I now have to focus on figuring out what is next and making changes to grow as a person. In this body of work I showcase the struggles of loss and the impact it has on life. Volleyball was important to my sister and my relationship, and by incorporating the figure and physicality of the sport into my work, I am creating emotional and physical ties within the visual art."
