ARTIST STATEMENT

In my work I speak from my experiences and trauma. My work is intimate and suggestive.  The image reaches further leaving it to the free interpretation of the viewer. I intend to show a reality that lurks in our inner selves as a form of reflection and contained catharsis. Introspection is a source of inspiration for my work.
