Winter
2 min. mini DV © 2005
Colour field painting and the winter prairies are interlocked to make an emotional narrative of barrenness. Prairie fields during a winter storm are built into colour blocks. This is a flat minimal experience in a feminine colour pallet.

Deep Junior, Act a little Crazy
2 min., 30 sec. ©2003
In this age of computers the only edge we have is to act a little crazy. Through the simple act of making a human mark, the artist explores the paradox between being and non-being.

Red Riding Hood
6 min. Beta ©1994
This version of the classic tale is explored through the internal narrative of Red Riding Hood herself. She is consumed with anxiety about her personal life and her surrounding environment. In this age of change, running anxiety is a normal reaction to our word. Visually playful, the main character changes from finger puppet to paper cutout to human actor, while her inner self remains constant.
This video was in-camera edited on a Hi-8 handicam.
