ARTIST STATEMENT

My art practice is inextricably tied to my personal experience. Stores of family, relationships, and self-awareness generate forces of emotion - fear, hope, loss, pain, and love - that drive me through the creation process.

The complexity of formal elements and process is present throughout my work. My aim is not only to mirror the intricacies of my personal story, but also to connect with the viewer, to echo the personal, emotional struggles that resonate with each of us, and that are present in the collective human mind and heart.
