"I personally work in a variety of mediums and my choice depends upon what feels most suitable to deliver meaning. Sometimes it is textiles, collage or mixed media and frequently assembled pieces. I currently am exploring the intersections of writing and art and continue to work with social commentary.
At this point in my life, I am less concerned about the medium I work in and am more concerned with producing art or art experiences that gives space to viewers to get in touch with their emotions and communicates ideas or raises questions. I want to encourage people to begin conversations about what they are seeing and feeling."
