I began working in collage in a loose reference to mapping, charting, and cartography. I used collage as a medium to transform existing images of landscapes and architecture, culled from magazines, and showed the influence of people living and interacting with these places. While a specific reference to a traditional map might not be immediately visible in these pieces, they can be considered an effort to re-map idealized and untouched landscapes in relationship to dynamics of space, time, and culture. I aim to demonstrate the potential experience of beauty within landscapes but with a paradox-- we also have the power to change them, sometimes to the point of irreversibility.
