Artist's Statement

“My work is an abstracted representation of me: my identity, the way in which I relate to others and understand the environment I am in. I use ceramic materials to create formal abstractions that reveal different facets—physical, experiential, emotional—of myself."

"The artwork I create with this clay is influenced by the different cultural experiences to which I have been exposed and the way those interactions build my identity.”
