As an artist, I explore different ideas, mediums, and imaginings in my studio to push my development as an artist. It is a goal of mine within the work that I create to explore my personal voice through artmaking, which essentially pushes me to redefine what this means for me as an artist. I have extensively studied creativity and what it looks like for all kinds of people, and I continue to ask: why do we create? what inspires us to make new things? why do I have this drive, this need, this inspiration? And ultimately, how can I share this with others? I make art because it is what I do to maintain my sense of self as an individual.
I make many things. I limit myself to no one medium, themes, or style. I embrace change and focus on what I feel called to create. I take what inspires me in the moment and use it. I illustrate and compose accordion books; I journal by drawing and painting; I alter old books through various mixed media; I create clay home decor pieces; I make pottery and functional clay objects; I draw and paint portraits; I create acrylic and ink abstracts; I take photographs of my travels; and I reflect on my body of work as it is ever-evolving and reflective of me.
