Statement

My life is not separate from my art, my life is art and has always been art. I am, for all intent and purposes, self-taught.I have an unshakable belief in La Unidad, Unity in all things. I believe we are all connected to everything and everyone. I see myself as a spiritual storyteller; the narrative symbolic allows me to tell a stories in which I am not the sole interpreter, the viewer is also an interpreter. My imagery is intentionally accessible and universal by way of archetypes that are open and flexible enough to allow for many interpretations, not one interpretation. My use of visual language, the symbolic, expresses my intent to engage the viewer in a dialogue. Through this unspoken dialogue an intimacy arises and the space to dream, imagine, contemplate–that, to me, is freedom.
