As an artist I'm an investigator, and I find this is the case as I continue to grow in my practice. I'm meant to call into question the body, the mind and every intention that surrounds it. I'm meant to seek to examine the emotional, political and spiritual climate around me. So my mission first is investigation, and by achieving this in-depth, I hope to by some degree bring the spectator to a place of new revelation. Aesthetically, circles are a huge part of my practice, motions begin and return to each other.
