Artist Statement

Drawing from biographical and cultural contexts, my photographs and video work explore the conventions of the Self-Portrait, revealing the disruption between self, depiction, image, and representation, and exploring the relationship between performance and the camera. 

My work is about the self in self-portrait, the portrait in self-portrait, and the hyphen in self-portrait.
