Statement

My work, first and foremost, is about community and the idea of family in its entirety. Certain projects I have done communicate these ideas in different ways, but my process is relatively fluid and consistent each time, each project becomes a part of a cycle that repeats over time. The creation of wearable objects, costumes, and scene pieces makes way for a performance with a group of people that is then documented with photography and video and is finally used as reference for different two- dimensional series of drawings and or paintings. These finished pieces then inspire the next round of physical making of objects and then the process starts over again, completing the circle of my creative process.
