Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 20 Art Competition
My artwork focuses on the alteration of space. Often touching upon political, societal, environmental, or personal issues and themes, ranging from local to global, I explore multicultural factors such as disability, addiction, sexual orientation/identity, growth, and spirituality. Rarely does my work share media from one piece to the next. Instead, I find the media that best fits the piece and allow my concept to determine the form and manipulation of that media. Included in much of my work is an element of interactivity, extending from scale, to sensual elements and transformative qualities. This provides my audience with the opportunity to more closely identify with its message and experience what may be a new perspective.
