As a processed based interdisciplinary artist, I believe that all work must evolve and change throughout the creative journey. Holding a fixed objective is contrary to intuitive, raw, and organic creativity.
As a visual artist, I focus on communication. I explore ideas of how we internalize, interpret, and relate personal and collective experiences.
There is a continuous element of spirituality present. I often employ rituals to understand and transcend the aforementioned focal points and heighten the present moment's transformative power.
I shift between mediums and creative outlets and rely heavily on time-based, ephemeral, and increasingly improvisational means of generating.
As a foundational element of my process, improvisation is embodied during my live work and energetically present in other chosen mediums' residue. This energy, whether incorporated or residual, creates a feeling and sensation of instability in my work. This palpable sensation brings the viewer's attention and awareness of the present moment's potentially transformative power and inherent fragility and beauty. I hope the experience will be unique and personal within this moment. It has never been my intention to elicit a particular response. Instead, I desire to initiate a dialogue that produces questions that lead to answers, or perhaps answers to questions not yet asked.
