I obsessively deconstruct, analyze, and reconstruct issues from vulnerable places of my everyday experience, such as family dysfunction and mental health. Methodically, I then assemble my interpretations with process and each medium’s associations playing crucial roles in relationship to the imagery and themes. In constructing these pieces, I seek to create dialogue: connection, understanding, and conflict over the subject at hand.
