Artist Statement

I am a visual artist who creates autobiographical work that is resonant to my emotions and state of being.  I explore ideas using photography and mixed media with a focus on portraiture and cultural adornment. I have an interest in how cultures visually express themselves. 

My work is constructed in the narrative that straddles between fantasy and reality as a response to my experiences of identity, culture and heritage.
