In my collage and mixed-media work, I explore systems, typography, and narrative through experimental methods involving an expansive range of accretive and erosive processes including painting, gluing, scraping, sanding, tearing, erasing, patching, correcting.

Anyone walking down Feltwhip Road early that morning would have noticed the light in the shop window. The clouds were heavy with water scooped up from the sea, and they threatened to dump it all at once onto the dark streets of Graves. Even so, the golden flicker of that lone candle in the window might make someone stop and linger for a moment.

with a blanch shell. i have walked, legs
split hungry, and i have walked too old.

but chose the warmest place there was, away
from the mossy tree where we kept her chained
for safety, so she wouldn’t run away.

I ask her what changes when I turn off the light
and she says, Go ahead.
I ask what else and
she says, According to whom?
