As an artist I am often caught at a cross roads between self-examination and considering my relationship towards my surroundings; interpreting social and critical constructs; and navigating a duality between self-orientation and broader senses of community. I am working through these complexities all in the same visual spaces, where my creative practice is a kind of navigation both conceptually and visually, and in ways works as a form of embodied learning. I will often consider finished works a form of portrait, which to me is representative of numerous attributes, experiences, overlapping perspectives and orientations held within a particular summary.

Select works have been chosen to highlight critical explorations I have been working through during my time at ECUAD. Issues surrounding self and collective identities, mental and emotional health, de/colonial constructs, rights and systemic injustices issues, and recognizing ecological and sustainable necessities have been significant subjects for me.
Thank you for your time and considerations.
