Artist Statement

My series consists of vibrant still life compositions that represent my creative approach to interpreting idiomatic expressions. The starting point for each image is a common phrase, such as Hold Your Horses, Under the Weather, and Three Peas in a Pod. This series of work is a playful and witty transformation of this figurative language which results in an unexpected non-literal interpretation. The still lifes display detail-oriented studio sets, utilizing various lighting techniques with an intentional color palette. Each image is created based on a combination of whimsical elements and free association, allowing the viewer to comprehend each scene through their own lens.
