Artist Statement

In my current work I explore the marks we make and collect throughout our lives. Each piece is a curated collection of signatures and stamps, lists and letters, receipts and forms - the paper trail of personal narrative. Taking my visual cues from these items, I yield to curiosity and intuition, adding my own playful markings. In this way I gently tease out the humanity behind the artifacts in a celebration of the things we create and the things we leave behind.

Some of this technique can also be seen in my ketubahs (Jewish marriage certificates) where I allow the designs to develop organically without overthinking the composition. Messy. Improvisational. Conversational. Raw. Connected. My own interpretations of what it means to engage in lifelong partnership.
