“I am interested in the little visual moments that get your attention throughout each day. A missing brick in a wall, an overturned traffic cone paired with an empty Bojangles cup, the split second when you realize you’ve caught the perfect sunset. As I move through my routine, I take quick snapshots with my camera of architecture and objects, specifically fleeting moments of the shadows interacting with them as they start to confuse that space. The architecture is always there, but if I catch that space at the right time, a special composition forms as the shadows bring new visual life just for that instance. I like to celebrate this confusion of space in my own work through a bright camouflage of color and layered photographs. I like for the imagery in my work to stay secret, hiding in plain sight. As a novice nomad for the last few years, I have left a piece of me in each city that has given me a sense of place. These drawings are made from photographs of intimate quiet moments taken in my current and previous homes, paying homage to my roots and celebrating the little moments.”
