As a conceptual and visual artist, I specialize in painting and intermedia art practices. My focus is on performance and wearable art, serving as an extension of identity and experience. The physical interaction of the art with the body functions as the performance element, the temporal and temporary portion which only exists in the moment.
I am also interested in how the passage of time impacts people, as well as how things exist within the context of their environments.
