"My artwork arises from a displacement of home. Home is no longer a physical place; it now exists in my heart and memories. I use a personal narrative that embodies a developed vocabulary of symbols to illustrate the struggle that exemplifies any individual as they mature. I strive to depict a world of anxieties and fears that collide with a world of ambiguous subconsciousness. I use my own life experiences to construct associative memoirs and scenes that explore the dynamic impact of transformation and growth."
