Artist Statement

My work explores imperfections; they are something to be admired. As a culture, we may appear whole and healthy when we are not, we act strong while trying to pull broken pieces back together. I address the pressure of being human, the need to be flawless. Cultural expectations of beauty cause the loss of individuality and authenticity. My forms reveal the shell of a person, broken, fractured from psychological pain, which has been shed.
