Artist Statement

My work centers around the concept of liminality. A liminal space is a transition, or threshold, between two points in time or space. These boundaries can be further extracted into descriptions of cultural rites of passage, physical transitions such as hallways or doorways, or psychological states such as adolescence or mid-life crisis. My lithographs are greatly influenced by my study of the stages of embryonic development, completed for my graduate school dissertation, in which I was able to observe in real-time the cellular changes that occur as a fertilized egg progresses from a single cell to a fully formed organism. This constant state of flux is present in every aspect of our lives and is reflected in my own inner journey and life experience as I toggle between my respect and understanding of both art and science.
