Artist Statement

I started to draw in infancy when I learned to crawl. I used the materials on hand, from jam to grass to flowers smeared together trying to replicate my visions on walls, paper and anything else I could reach. Once, my father lost sight of me and I turned our newly-painted house into a giant mural with my childhood fantasies.
