Artist Statement
My practice extends from my philosophical interests and my political and personal realities; negotiating ethics, parenthood, humor, and anxiety. I use poetic constructions to cross back and forth from linguistic to material signs, attacking the stability of language while leveraging and subverting unconsidered, yet nevertheless present, beliefs.
