Experiencing death is an ongoing and deeply personal project. The purpose of my work is to create a visual narrative for a story that examines rather than shy’s away from how precious life is and that, despite how cold and finite death may seem, it is a vital and integral conclusion of a story that can’t ever be fully told without including it. So much of death’s story remains untold, unseen, unwitnessed or experienced. My deep desire is to share, just a little, of death’s enigmas.
