Full Artist's statement
My artwork is a visual representation of my hybridism: a fusion of my gender, ethnicity, cultural, and social experiences. I intentionally impose colors, imagery, and materials that evoke femininity and tranquility with the intent of transcending or balancing a specific form. I associate working with light, color, and energy as a positive means to focus on the healing power found in the creative process and within us all. I believe colors have both feminine and masculine energies and each color represents a specific aspect of nature.
I desire my artwork to embody my spiritual connection to color and project a sense of energy to positively affect others. I merge colored feminine objects and masculine forms in order to visually fuse the various materials and energies. I use found objects to symbolically articulate the need to recycle energy and power inherent to discarded materials. Through my work I seek to examine the parallels between how humanity perceives its greatest resources, men, and women verses how we treat our possessions and environment.
