Statement

Artist Statement

My practice is rooted in storytelling. I am interested in the relationship between the personal narrative and inherited memory, as well as, how these mechanisms inform interpersonal relationships. Abstraction is the language used to interpret and reduce narratives to marks, lines and gestural drawings that become metaphors for relationships. I employ video to examine narratives that reveal struggles with identy, relationships, perception and to document a return to locations from my childhood that trigger narratives that reveal real or perceived violence.
