I enjoy the sense of losing myself in what I do. When boundaries start blurring between myself and what I work with, think about, or create, I like to sit in my studio-set-up and document a new sense of identity. These were taken while pulling invasive vines and grasses from our woods and exemplify a persistent exploration of home, place, and identity.
