In my work I examine the tension between public space and private identity.  Through manipulations of familiar images, I suggest that our public and private selves are not easily reconciled.   In my recent collages, I conflate fashion’s celebration and distortion of the body with our more day-to-day experience of its flaws, failures and expellants.

Curling blonde hair is an icon of feminine allure and a symbol of conformity.  I surround the viewer with enlarged blonde hair in Bombshell, a large installation of inkjet prints on translucent silk.  Bombshell both seduces and suffocates, much like the idealized femininity it depicts.
