Artist Statement

Through experience, we grow, change, and evolve. Recently, personal growth has shifted my interests from representational and symbolic works to more abstract pieces. Using texture, pattern, and an intuitive approach, my current work depicts emotion through volume, depth and movement while expanding beyond the picture plane. By combining recycled objects including plastic, fabrics, and wax paper with the printmaking, painting, and embroidery processes, each piece has an independent voice. The combination of mediums and processes help provoke psychological emotions in viewers, including the feelings of fear, anxiety, and desire. Through my artistic exploration with this series of works, I have come to understand my emotions about the changes and opportunities life has given me. In viewing these works, one will hopefully respond in a way that makes them appreciate the growth, change, and experiences life offers.
