Artist Statement"I have very clear memories, but my goal is to recreate a particular moment in time with a specific emotion. I’m interested in the perception and deception of memory. Experiences in architecture, carpentry and set design help me reinvent spaces into multi-media installations. I seek objects relative to the memory’s location and time. Sometimes I use actual objects; other times, I recreate them. In essence, the installations are memories of memories…echoes of what once was."
