Our bodies are constantly changing, aging, and declining. My current body of work focuses on this process through the interpretation of medical imaging.

As artists we find these images compelling since they can tell a story, or by abstraction become a series of lines and shapes at times unrecognizable, but at the same time familiar. Body images provide a window into how we feel about ourselves as we age.
