Artist Statement

My work is a combination of lived experiences. Drawings, overlapped with collage, are devices to encase and trap ideas. During the process of revision, I constantly sift trough previously discarded memories and their attached emotions, visual allegories, ironic depictions and fantastical environments are the elements I use to develop my narratives.
