statement My practice is an intuitive cycle of risk, failure, and reinvention. While often frustrating, these missteps pull me into the present moment and foster greater authenticity in my work.

Freezing these ephemeral moments in permanent materials allows me to create a concrete connection between the past, present and future. This tested record sheds light on the inescapable effects of life, encouraging vulnerability and self-reflection.
