Artist's Statement

My studio practice investigates the universal questions of Self. Through process, performance, and installation, I consider the body as the tool of measurement in regards to our questions of Being. I explore the nuanced facets of emotions and how they evolve as we experience them. Involved with our experience is how we communicate with others and the personal vulnerability that ensues.
