artist statement
I have always been interested in expressing my current emotion. My recent work expresses small emotions that I feel in everyday life, and my feelings about various news and events happening on the globe. Our technology-driven civilization causes many problems and distortions within our society, to include separations between the rich and poor, racial problems, education and other things. People create rules and laws, but still, our society is not perfect, and there are people who will have disadvantage due to it.

My visual style integrates surrealism and abstract imagery. This work depicts the complexity of memory, and how one memory relates to another memory. Memories are referenced to make decisions in our daily life.
