Artist Statement:

As a multidisciplinary scholar-artist, I’m invested in archiving contemporary American culture and deepening people’s emotional intelligence. I look at history, otherness, perception, and generational patterns across societal and familial systems through playing in modalities such as meditative geometry drawing, color theory, portraiture, or body painting.
