ARTIST STATEMENT

When I was a little girl growing up in Rome, I had a dream.  In that dream I saw a beam of light illuminating specks of dust.  It lasted a split second and I have been trying to catch that light ever since. That moment of illumination, that moment when that which I am looking at comes to life.
