In Elements of Love, I investigate the urban landscape of Los Angeles as a site for revealing complexities in social interactions and intimate relationships. I explore constructs of femininity and masculinity and connections between the built environment and nature at the locus of the city.

I also explore personal stories that involve issues of power, vulnerability, erasure as well as love and closeness in intimate relationships. In this work, I am interested in creating narratives of love and loss, fulfillment and emptiness, wonder and hurt.

I am also interested in disrupting the boundaries between photography, digital media, and painting and drawing- allowing them to merge and bleed into one another, while the images nonetheless remain digital and photographic.
