My work utilizes my biography not only to explore personal experience but also to provide a lens for the persistent effects of social institutions and cultural practices on the individual. Addressing everything from immigration to sexuality
I am searching for a dynamic and evolutionary way to expose the artistic process and the painterly
imagery. The subject matter of many of my art works on which I stage the evolution of the artistic
process, is art about art, mass media icon
My works are meditations on the search for balance between the inner and outer world, and on the perception of our impermanence; a reflection on the universality of the human experience, and on the necessity for a radical reverence for life
The process of mark-making through drawing, carving or etching is the most direct way for me to translate an experience. I am interested in capturing and unraveling the dualities of everyday, urban life in my imagery.
My work captures scenes from my neighborhood. They take an introspective approach to social
commentary, focusing on my own perspective while exploring how everyday interactions
contribute to boundaries between social groups.
Vision + Document = Mission. This equation has been my photographic mantra for 15 years strong
and continues to be through chronicling a strong, noble and vibrant people living in the present for
others to know in the future.
