I begin each piece with a found image from a strangers life. A multi-step process allows me time to reflect on what I’m seeing while introducing opportunities for chance and elements which I cannot control. My main motivation in both process and content is to reassure myself that I can be ok and find meaning from within the uncertainty of life.
