Artist / Personal Statement
Born in Seattle, living in Vancouver, BC.

My work explores the ambiguous threshold between perception and reality. Inspiration is found in my origin’s, hometown, family and childhood experiences. The narrative fluidly departs from fact into myth when familiar forms are used in unfamiliar arrangements; mirroring the fragmented yet resilient nature of memory.

Integral in my process is the use of materials that have personal histories; quilting scraps, handkerchiefs, family photographs, shot gun shells- objects which are the remnants of a collective past. By compiling and redefining layers of physical history, the works provoke sensory and nostalgic reactions that are shrouded with mystery.

Hi Jenny! I just met Brian (below). I just showed some pieces at a gallery called Gallery 6 PDX. Happy EAster! How's art making going?
