You are your art, it comes from you— from your experiences, your mind, your heart— this is an idea that profoundly effects me. My art reflects the pull towards freedom, what I want to inspire in others and cultivate in myself. Freedom is captured in my process, in working with whatever I have on hand, to subject matter, of exploring objects, philosophies and institutions that capture the idea of self liberation to me. Some of my work simply reflects on what a soul is and the vastness of our internal selves, what’s hidden in a face and what exists in between the inside and outside. Life is messy and multi-faceted, so is my art— but I try to move through it as gracefully as I can.
