Artist Statement

Life’s experiences are fragmented layers which are multifaceted.  I’m interested in exploring the repercussions of the numerous emotional and psychological scars we have by living, such as getting past abuse.   

Learning how to get beyond these struggles can give us a new paradigm or instead some of us are consumed by depression and simply plod through life.  The imagery in my work isn’t exactly arbitrary; but instead are marks we live with and in our minds, they have validity based on experiences. Basic questions with the spiritual, political, societal, our sexuality and then where do we put our mortality? These make up our layers as individuals.
