In the work I create, I research and examine the resonance of the dispersal of information in America today. My background in printmaking and bookmaking has given me the impetus to make close and playful examinations of the media and our interactions with it. However, I do not feel limited to the field of printmaking in my work. Instead, I often work in a cross disciplinary manner, as I seek to challenge the categories of the medium and find the form that is best suited to the content, whether it be sculpture, performance, installation, or printed matter.

I find the use of histories and narrative forms intriguing, as they are the vernacular of information dispersal. In particular, as a printmaker, I find it important to always keep in mind methods of production and media, as it is through commenting on the process of how and what kinds of information we distribute, we may come to new conclusions about our own implications within it.
