ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Based in Austin, Texas, I am a painter, photographer, and mixed media artist with a BFA in Studio Art. Heavily influenced by memory and self-reflection, my work revolves around the concept of home, exploring spatial and social dialectics as well as those of appropriation. I am interested in the spatial order and identity that orients us in space and time relative to home. Layering and embedding images on one another then reducing them to simpler forms, line and color lead to larger worlds of chaos and complexity. These settle into dualities of binary opposites such as light and dark, sharp line meeting organic, and known versus unknown.

“I believe that one can never leave home. I believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and the dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe.”
— Maya Angelou, Letter To My Daughter
