Excerpt from artist statement:

\n

I speak f or 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\; fea rful they may be too telling.”   Joanna Freuh\, Mouthpiece

\n

As humans\, we live in a state of dy namic\, 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 fu neral service\, life is an indefinable experience. It fluctuates\, never r emaining in one moment or emotion for long. This dynamism creates the comp lexity of life\, the beauty of life\, and the path of life.  As Joanna Fre uh says\, “life is sloppy” and\, as an artist\, I celebrate\, question\, a nd reveal the sloppiness of our lives.
