“As an artist working with both still and moving images, I am concerned with the intersection of documentary and narrative practices. My work addresses identity and perception. Most recently my mother is my principle model in the re-telling of my family history through set up photographs. I am interested in exploring my family history as a mirror in reflecting the historical and the social.

My interests have lead me to work within the United States and Central America, examining the overlapping history of the two cultures while speaking to my own experience growing up. In my series Casa de Mujeres, my mother plays the role of three women in one fictional Latin American home. These photographs can be read as portraits of my mother as her various selves - like a nested doll, and as images that reveal the conflict of vanity, race and class that live within one woman. In Casa de Mujeres, the three women, a pair of twin sisters, one lighter in skin color, and a maid, are family and they hold both love and contempt for each other in equal measure.”
