I strive to make artwork that questions the boundaries of what is known and what is perceived. By selecting old family photographs as my source imagery, I reinterpret a scene that has occurred; however, my translation of the original image seeks to enhance our understanding of what is unseen or unknown. I am interested in the many variables that change our perception of the people being depicted. I do not want merely to recreate the photos in a new medium; rather, with manipulations of the images and choices made in printing processes, I hope to expose the subjective nature of these photos. Furthermore, I am exploring the effect this unveiling has on my understanding of my family history and my role within it.
