"Finding My Way is a series of large-scale print installations that are the culmination of a ten year period of conceptual and technical inquiry. As a meditation on past histories and future possibilities, the work is deeply personal.

Multiple narratives of progress versus tradition and constructed realities play out in these installations. Ladders balance precariously, beckoning us up to enlightenment or down to safer ground, or worse. It is unclear which direction one can or will take. Children look down from above, seemingly impervious to the chaos and uncertainty below, but this journey is open-ended and has potentially infinite readings for the viewer. Perhaps the children look down on us knowing all too well what their feet walk upon?"
