Personal experience, dreams, fashion, as well as religious and cultural iconographies visually inform my work. I adopt objects and rituals from other cultures and use them in my work to locate myself within the context of feminine identity. My own cultural hybridization lays the groundwork for continued examination of these experiences. Using formal and conceptual methods such as staged and straight photography, appropriation, sound and video, my work confronts established perceptions and norms, and offers a new framework for contemplation.
