My artistic practice functions as a form of visual anthropology, focusing on the exploration of the human experience. Visual language has the power and potential to operate as a method of communication that unifies people beyond geographic, cultural, linguistic, and ideological divides. 
This mode of translation via visual discourse centers upon the fusion between emotional intuition; the labor involved in process-based practices; and the examination of ideas, histories, and conditions, as a means of channeling or challenging existing structures and developing them further.
Through exploration of space, memory and environment, I weaves ideologies and materials together, resulting in an organic experience for the viewer.
