Shifting Wires | 2016

According to today's research in brain analysis, we initially resist change, no matter what, in our own way.  However, once we have a resolution or an epiphany with that change, our brain gives us a physical and emotional reward and we feel the need to then repeat and repeat so that we can feel the same sensation again.

Our Masks | 2013

This piece plays with our instincts of social survival in different settings - large groups, romance, friendships, relationships with oneself - and how we adopt many different personalities for each.  Whether we choose to hide behind our masks as a safe haven or rip them away to become a more raw form of ourselves is a different choice for each person to make.

Finding Flight | 2011

Finding Flight is the transition from shelter to independence.  The first experience of being out on one's own goes from safety, comfort and care to a jumble of excitement, fear, drive and constant need of encouragement.  There is always something being thrown at us in life, and we are always searching for our feet...why not look up?
