Artist Statement

The only thing I know for certain is the story of me.

I am enamored with the power of the written word and use it to convey the narrative within me. My work is aimed to bring people closer together though shared experiences while using my personal experiences as a platform.

Language is my medium and the semiotics embodied by written words fascinates me. Our literate brains cannot ignore words; we see them as a string of letters that convey a meaning, and never just a series of characters. We are always reading, always consuming information without pause. My work capitalizes on the consumption of language. In my work I use text as a direct line of communication to establish a secure connection with the viewer. While interpretations of the words can vary, it is fact that they are words, none the less.
