Backdrop (detail) 2015

I use everyday craft materials, office supplies, found-objects, and hardware store supplies in playful room-size installations that explore loss, nostalgia, and traditional expectations of femininity. I see my installations as theatrical moments frozen in time suggesting that something has just occurred or is just about to. Once the work is complete, I document and de-install it. Nothing remains but the photographs and a pile of broken and tattered materials, like the forlorn detritus of an epic celebration the night before.
