Little Parade is an on-going series where I make flags and put them in constructed sets or in landscapes. This project began as nothing more than away to physically and visually interact with my surroundings. After starting this project, I began to question the concept and controversy of flags. They have little or no monetary value but can symbolize a great deal. This playful project is a deconstruction of what a flag is. Conceptually it has turned into me using the flag as a physical adjective to explore notions of conquering, exploration and surrender. The flag is a sort of “fill in the blank”.

Is an on-going portrait series I started in 2014, featuring participants in the fringe hobby of role-playing. The series is an exploration of how our hobbies can help us discover and implement who we are outside of jobs, bills, societal pressures, even our friends and families. These Individuals are creating worlds and stories, which are benefitting their lives and communities.
