“i saw you and wished i had known how to love you better.

i’m sorry i was the way that i was.
You were always so forgiving and tender to me.
i hope you’re doing okay. i’ve missed you for a very long time.
- Craigslist Missed Connection

My work has a confessional quality. I investigate loneliness, intimacy, and cultural ideas around couple-ness. My work rarely takes the same form twice, sometimes using photography, sculpture, or installation each work comments on the human condition in a different and unique way. I hope to connect to my viewer through their own personal relationships, and help them to gain a new perspective on connection.

I study these things by deconstructing ads promising true love, or exploring objects that represent or are a replacement for intimacy and affection, and sometimes I mine missed connections to learn about how place and technology mediate our relationships.

Using my own memories and experiences with relationships I explore romanticism, human connection, and the promise of the happily ever after.
