Artist's statement:

My soul has withstood many trials which has allowed for memory and mind to collaborate with many different media.

My inspiration comes from the trials my eyes have had to witness and my soul to confront. During the creative process, I relive the emotions that lie within my mind. Art acts as a catalyst by easing the thoughts of mayhem and producing a sense of healing.

As an artist, my work consists of snapshots of my life in various media. Such images emanating from both my memory and psyche are captured in acrylics, pens & ink and papier mâché
