ARTIST STATEMENT

Millions of people have chronic illnesses like me and it is why I use my art as a social voice for it. I enjoy creating personal connections with these viewers by using familiar religious symbols and colors found in nature. I have seen my art inspire and provide solace to those emotionally stuck and hurting from chronic pain and poor health. Uplifting and connecting with them is why I create these anatomical self portraits. It is the combination of emotion, research, and icons that results in these dreamlike statement pieces that sit somewhere between allegory and actuality.
