I work with ideals and cultural expectation through media codes. The relationship between images and how they penetrate us with persuasive visual codes in a range of ritualized gender constructs, prescribe normative behaviors and form our ideas of identity. Distilling the imagery down to stylistic forms, results in dialects of visual language.

As a visual philosopher and multimedia artist, I work to motivate reflection on the increasing challenges of reading the environment and to promote visual literacy based on critical thinking within this mythic world.
