The stories that I tell encompass the beautiful and the monstrous simultaneously. As I work, I think about the balance of the self physically, genetically, and psychologically. I wonder about how these elements function together as a convoluted dichotomy, forming a creature that we know as human. My work is about life and remembering from multiple points of view. My stories are told through the many characters that make me who I am. Sometimes the character is painted and frozen in time...communicating silently. Other times she comes to life and tells her story in a different way. But the core remains the same, and together a unique balance is created.
