"Identity, the constant inward and outward search for authenticity and consciousness examined through personal, familial, natural and cultural-historical identity, have become the basis for exploring the pictorial subject matter in my work. The paintings I create, which surround a subject matter with the natural world, have become a way for me to gain physical and emotional agency. This body of work aims to empower by speaking directly to the situations that surround us daily and remind us to give the environment the importance, respect, and love it deserves."
