Artist Statement



I often experience visibility, invisibility, and slippage in and out of social constructs like ethnicity and culture. My experience has made me keenly aware of and fascinated with the fluid nature of identity. As an artist I am especially interested in exploring the infinite ways identities are expressed from culture to culture. I respond by collaging media in a menagerie of lost and found imagery from traditional drawing and painting to the digital domain. The modern and the ancient are juxtaposed in the process.
