Biography

“My art practice involves several media: I began my artistic career as a book artist and, in many ways, aspects of bookmaking carry over into filmmaking in terms of creating a narrative through the sequencing of images… I am investigating ideas about love and loss, faith and longing in attempt to capture what is both beautiful and fleeting. The primary activity of my work is an effort to distill, slow down, observe, remember and recover these fleeting moments.”
