My work enacts the process of my transformation in response to trauma, especially the duality between my interior trauma and exterior appearance. The work represents my feelings of an event that occurred, the experience it, and how I overcame it. I started painting when I was a very young child, but realized art is a powerful and transformative healing tool.
The work challenges assumptions about beauty through diverse media such as poetry, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and video. Specifically, the viewers are asked not to accept beauty at face value, but rather: where it is coming from and what it is concealing?
