My goal is to blur the lines between mind and body, and health and disease. I explore the body’s fragility and strength, realizing that by facing our mortality, we also find meaning and build connections. I work in series, reflecting a sense of time and space. Using cut-up photographs, mixed media, and paint on different surfaces from canvas and paper to plexiglass, I see how energy comes through the body within the process of making art.
