Modern Realities  This mixed-media series is an exploration of the social illusions present in our modern world especially through social media and advertising.   So often things are not what they seem on the surface, yet we go along with these visual deceptions in order to feel connected and achieve "happiness".   Yet what often results for people is unworthiness and a greater sense of isolation.  It seems to really experience connection, clarity, and joy,  we need to acknowledge the deeper truths of being human such as our impermanence, our sameness, our deep connection to our environment, and to allow for a broader emotional range...  Maybe then we can truly experience the present moment and all that it offers.
