Artist Statement

My works focus on moments. Time, present in seconds and minutes, can only be preserved through documentation, as memory is fleeting and easily forgotten or transformed. My work is often marked by an exploration of rural versus urban life, namely the accelerated pace of development and social infrastructure. I produce works which explore the personal and the universal, which investigate the invisible systems of power that govern everyday existence, and which instigate debate among viewers without conventional ink on paper. My works address social issues. I work with a multitude of techniques and materials. The result of which may be mixed media painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography, sound, or performance. Found objects that relate to a particular society or community are central in my work. They may be woven, sewn, glued, welded, nailed, collages, cast, or carved. They may be mounted on canvas as 2D mixed media painting, or used as sculptural 3D work. My works invoke touch and tempt viewers to forget how to move their feet. I am always trying new things, experimenting, and challenging myself with new techniques, ideas and materials to interact with people. I have dedicated my life as an interdisciplinary artist to easing pain and providing comfort, peace, and solace. I believe art can be a balm to the soul, revealing an often quiet inner truth. My art is about the joys in life and is directly inspired by rhythm, harmony, and repetition of movements. ...
