This relationship to my work has become
obsessive, as if in reality, I experience my art as a psychological state of
being which lives both externally and internally. I am interested in where the process takes us. How reality extends what we can think. In my work, this is both freedom and limitation. Using exploratory techniques and aesthetical solutions, I create a process of making as means of thinking. By using handmade tools and imagery, I discover my own story and awareness. I pull inspiration from my travels to the Middle East and Asia, as well as my upbringing in the southern cultures of the United States.
Painting lends itself to an installation, installing becomes a photograph, the photo becomes a scene or a song and the process continues like time. In understanding my own perspective of the world, I began looking through historical science at other species, cultures and times. I relate to other living organism as having their own histories and stories. I find solace in convergent relationships between cultures and time periods, and feel connected to my own species and planet through this type of conscious making.
Currently, I am using images of mammals to represent my viewpoint on spirituality, art history, relationships and pop culture. Through depicting scenes in all mediums, I narrate this conscious/unconscious story of science, genders, memories, and mythology in one common voice.
