Artist Statement

When light is casted on something or someone, the harmonies that happen between shadows and highlights become the sculptor of moods and emotions. I find fascination in those daily occurrences and use my identity as an influence to recreate such.

Growing up on an island has made me appreciate the nature of its warm winds and cool waters. My work studies the connection between the flow of nature and the flow within our mind and body. The dancer; the jazz player; the college student studying for their final exam, all get into that zone; we all are similar in this way.

Use this body of work as a gateway that encourages you to go deep inside to find those calm memories when life gets chaotic.
