artists statement

I am interested in the processes that develop out of my own personal encounters with the world. There is much within my work that is political, that touches on the historical or a place. I enjoy the process of research and conceptualizing my encounters. I am a maker at heart. My art works are the things that arise out of my love of making and my curiosity.
