In her own words:
"Some of the themes I deal with in my photography include separation, secrecy, sexuality, fragility, fear and resistance. The way I try to address these matters is by using parts of the body as expressive tools. The subjects are removed entirely or they are masked as a means of revealing a lucidity that exists when parts of the body are isolated.
The images appear hazy or unfocussed, sometimes as a result of a camera maneuver and other times from a process of rephotographing existing photographs. In either situation my intent is to diminish the details and retain only that which is necessary. In part, what remains is a reduction of visible reality - a reality that is continually associated with photography."
