Artist Statement
In my mixed media work, I use medical imaging such as X-rays and MRIs, as a point of departure, sometimes serving as a metaphor for looking under the surface. I combine these intricate, mysterious images with other materials, attempting to reveal or tell a story.

On August 23, 2020, Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old African-American man, was shot and seriously injured by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as his children sat in his car. In the midst of a pandemic we watched videos of this shooting and those of other young black men. I was afraid that Jacob Blake’s story would be lost in the noise of the news. "Seven Shots at Close Range" is my attempt to memorialize this tragedy and failure.
