Artist Statement

My collages, accordion books, and scroll drawings are a combination of calligraphic marks and pictographic images that explore an intuitive language based on my bicultural experiences.

I am influenced by ancient writing systems because of the way they relate to nature. Similarly, it is a way for me to relate to my environment.
