My art reflects the relationship between myself and the world around us. Through this work, I explore the personal, cultural, national, and global perspectives. In this way my art serves as both bridge and conduit, transcending the material to cultivate dialogue. My process is a combination of creative play and problem solving while working through concepts of intersectional identity, and how one relates to notions of comfort and alienation. Migration and how one acculturates to a new environment, and the concept of home set against the context of time and space.
