Nominated by DePaul University

I use photography, textiles, installation and other mediums to investigate themes of isolation and fragmentation. References to the human condition, pop culture and sociology are always linked throughout my works. A crucial form in my work is lighting, specifically natural or available light sources. Lighting helps me emphasize themes of isolation and fragmentation in the work. It can rival the importance of the subject, and at times, it becomes the subject.
