Artist Statement | My mission is a constant act to heal others and myself. When we are forced into uniforms or pushed to strive towards becoming something that doesn’t ring true with our personal identity, the light of expression can be dimmed. The things that my hands create are moments reaching out to touch and brighten an internal flame. Your light is lit, I urge you to be ultra lit.
