Artist Statement

As a multidisciplinary artist whose work encompasses painting, drawing, text, poetry, music and performance, I use my dreams, an ancestor’s history and ancient artifacts as initial subject matter. I translate various archives into my work through reframing existing symbolic languages into new relational forms. The physical act of mark-making and the ritual of layering various materials- creating, erasing, defacing and then recreating- compels me in my process. In perceiving my initial mark as a contour line, a musical note, a word or sentence on a page, I am interested in exploring and ultimately unifying the lyrical, fugal and visual intersections of my different mediums and compositions.
