My work centers on the need to explore identity and a sense of sexuality. I focus on allowing my creations to become part of a primordial search into body, subconscious identity and self as defined by my perceptions. I venture to search for an impure balance between societal ďnormsĒ and self-truths that become a tangible and emotional aura that engages the viewer in the piece. I work from emotions and dreams, imbibing strong introspective undercurrents, which form part of a complex multidimensional self-portrait as a whole. Here in this process of creation, I am able to learn what forms my identity and give myself a voice to confess who and what I am. It is this commitment of body that makes art real for me. I am not venturing to reinvent myself but rather working to clarify and expand the path I am on.
