Artist Statement

Where others find comfort, guidance, and revelation in religion, I have found these things in books. The strongest, most satisfying memories of my childhood and adolescence involve me curled around a novel, immersed in words, unaware of anything beyond a nest of pillows and blankets. Filtered through the lens of the stories written by Charles de Lint, Clive Barker, Tanith Lee, Barbara Kingsolver and numerous other authors, my world seemed to contain unlimited possibilities for wonder, transformation, and romance. Religious Texts combines physical books with ink, watercolors, paper cutting, my own writing, and various other mediums in order to convey my experiences of reading.
