- A New Leaf series focuses on the visual depiction of various human emotions, ever-changing culturally and intellectually subjective states of mind.
- Inspiration to create the Sun Prints series came while pondering humanity’s impact on the planet, in particular our devastating effects on the insect world.
- Grassroots (the shun series) is an artist book created in reaction to contemporary American political language which has been invented and reinvented by those who hope to shape, conform, and convert the American public to a prescribed way of thinking.
All the works ask the viewer to consider the importance of subjective perspective and to consider the boundaries between reality and speculation and the various elements that constitute depiction, representation and visualization.
