The concept of “Home” and its associations often guide my practice. I'm interested in the varied forms of Home and its symbol as a universal core of place and a sense of belonging. Home is often considered a safe harbor or a retreat; however it can also represent or become the opposite. Domestic interiors are also an expression of self and tell a powerful visual history loaded in iconographic detail. My current interests on this subject examine the complex relationships and evolution between conventional/structured environments and those of a dissenting and organic nature – and how this translates into the intersections and historical contexts between fine art, design, architecture, and traditional crafts.

These drawings are part of a larger series that I'm currently working on -- more will be added as they're documented.
