As a multimedia artist, I aim to never limit myself to one form of art or expression. I am rebellious. I am eager. I push myself and incorporate a broad span of medium in my work. I manipulate these mediums in an effort to transform and expand them beyond their perceived capabilities.
Processes are central to my work; I never start anything without first engrossing myself in the subject matter. I build extensive collections of visuals and sounds. These collections allow me to completely immerse myself in the subject. I build layers that create depth, substance – they are a way to reconnect to the subject matter. It is important to me that these layers not be organized in a specific order or in a single medium. My sources come from everywhere and anywhere, and I often build them up, take them apart, and borrow ideas to create.
I am constantly working. I hope to never stop.
