I am fascinated by exploring areas between certainty and doubt, and provoking a sensual experience of light. In a polarized political and social atmosphere I view ambiguous subject matter and visual presentation as political acts. By creating enigmatic works, I intend to seduce the viewer into being comfortable with ambiguity.

Through my technique, I am able to convey a sense of the volume of space. The images are built through multiple firings of enamels on many layers of glass, allowing a depth of space within which objects ‘move’ as the viewer moves around the piece as imagery on each layer shifts in relation to the others and to the light.
