To create art, I utilize visual ideas gifted to me by my subconscious, so that the meaning of the work most often reveals itself by working through the creative process, not in planning. Concepts tend to be abstract and make most sense by reading them visually.
Consciously, my work is very spiritual, personal, and theatrical. I see my work as snapshots from a play that acts out my inner world, a world that is more real than physical, and one that connects all people. In my current body of work, I am the main actress of this play as my work consists heavily of self-portraiture, and wearable sculpture for my own body. This play has a specific visual language, costumes, and a soundtrack. These elements are inspired by dreams, childhood memories, the magic of everyday life, and music.
My art is an act of self-discovery that I find is usually helpful also in relating to others, by allowing them a window into my world which I hope they find magical in some way, as I do. Brushstroke by brushstroke, atom by atom, I try to link the physical and spiritual by depicting the spiritual, physically.
