Artist Statement

My artistic practice explores everyday human experiences and emotions, particularly within matters of identity and mental health. Regularly, whether due to matters associated with my biracial background, struggles with mental health, or my social and economic upbringing, I have experienced feelings of displacement and otherness that I strive to piece together in my works. Through an assortment of materials and media – paint, cardboard, shower rods, t-shirts, windows – I discover different means to reconstruct and convey my understanding of my lived experiences. The distinctive textures, shapes, and marks all work together to create one interconnected reality. I interpret these materials and structures as instances of real life, whether literally or figuratively, creating a moment that can be entered, experienced and be effortlessly digestible to the individual viewer. These works take on their own level of meaning and associations for the spectator, further adding to the depth and layers of personal narrative.
