    Artist's Statement

    Experiences impact who we are, our perspective on life, and how we interact in the world. I am drawn to the everyday experiences of peoples’ lives, no matter how mundane. These seemingly monotonous moments, which are often forgotten, tie us together as people. Without these memories, we lose who we are and how we fit in the world. I often use combined mediums to show the shift and loss of memories over the course of one's life. My work explores memory, passage of time, and impermanence of the a being.
