I enjoy creating mixed media constructions that bring attention to the relationship of a grouping of items to evoke memories or to start a narrative for the viewers. I believe that the former life of many items come into play, with their unique history that carries past memories. My subject matter revolves around childhood memories and imagery from the past. I consider much of my art as devotional art, and call many of my pieces shrines. My pieces are like small stories waiting to be told, perhaps triggering memories from the past… like a song or a fragrance, I believe that familiar items can bring you back in time.
