Excerpt from artist statement:

I speak for those of you who don’t yet know the words, who’ve lost your tongues, who have not found your voice, who are afraid to tell your stories; fearful they may be too telling.”   Joanna Freuh, Mouthpiece

As humans, we live in a state of dynamic, conflicting emotions. In moments of pain we experience joy and in moments of joy we have sorrow.  In my work I celebrate the contradictions and dynamism of the joy and sadness of life.  Just like the word “lovely,” which we may use to describe everything from a wedding ceremony to a funeral service, life is an indefinable experience. It fluctuates, never remaining in one moment or emotion for long. This dynamism creates the complexity of life, the beauty of life, and the path of life.  As Joanna Freuh says, “life is sloppy” and, as an artist, I celebrate, question, and reveal the sloppiness of our lives.
