The paradox of daily life as safe and comfortable, juxtaposed with its polar opposite – the uncertainties of life – appears to bully the American Dream itself. My prints and installations examine complexities and illusions created through the antithetical patterns of daily American suburban life by exploring the extent to which perceived safety is part of the national psyche.

By combining printmaking, painting, and photography, my work explores the over-exaggerated idea of safety that becomes weakened by isolation, chance, and violence, to which we are all vulnerable.
