Artist Statement

I view the arts as a means to connect with myself and the world around me. During my investigations, I am interested in how people form a sense of self, and I explore how identity and autobiography influence artistic practice and performance. In my work, I focus on the depth of the human experience. I believe that we are all complex creatures, with unique untold stories. I am interested in bringing these narrative moments into performance as a means to share the interconnectedness of human nature – what it means to be flesh, bones, lovers, friends, black, white . . . .

I am a multi-disciplinary artist utilizing collage, found objects, text, movement, sound, textiles, and film in my creative process. I am most interested in visceral experiences and physical nuances. The work I create provides me with space to bring the lived experience to live performance.
