Artist’s Statement:

Ghostmaker’s Habitat or,
When You Build Your House, I Will Come By

Come this way.  
The chair is warmed up for you.  
I want to show you something, anything. Let’s pass it back and forth. 
It is unclear what I mean to you, can you understand that?
I am a coward and can’t speak until spoken to 
and even then the odds are slim.


I painted floorboards because it felt good and grounding. 
I think this ghostmaker feels most comfortable under an eave. I do too. 

My work likes to focus around the intersection of fantasy and reality. How do the fantastical elements call upon reality to give them meaning? And how observations in reality can slip into the fantastical just by a certain framing. I like to use textiles and cardboard to construct structures that call back to childhood. But the inhabitants have not been children for a long time. The structures are used to house idiosyncratic objects and imagery particular to characters I am working with in my studio narrative.
