Artist Statement

Look to your Left then look to your right. Notice what you see, hear; does it move? Does it breath? Does it sit still? Now stop, pause, think about it.

I find myself constantly thinking about multiple things at once. Weather it’s the thing around me or the people I meet. I’m always trying to find a purpose and why something is here, yet I never stop to think why it can’t be and what might someone else see ; until I picked up a camera.

We do this by using art processes to engage in dialogue, bride-building, and problem-solving.
