romancing the farm (2003) (03:21)
As a child I began experimenting with animation and creating miniature worlds. Now, as an emerging artist focusing on stop-motion animation and sculptural installation, I believe that my experience as a child is major reason why I feel so connected and comfortable with my work and process. The process of creating the puppets and sets for my animations directly comes from this childhood experimentation. I have gradually developed a process that is definitely original. This is an important part of my artistic practice.
