Artist Statement

Working primarily with 16mm film, my artistic practice explores the tensions and contradictions found in the intimate relationships we form. From sexuality and touch to familial bonds and interpersonal dynamics, I seek to express my own shifting states between frames and allow for irreconcilable feelings to speak simultaneously.
