My artistic practice rests and manifests in introspection. The act of creation has become a ritualistic extension of my emotional regulation system and stream of consciousness. Artworks are external physicalities and visual representations of internal experiences that have surfaced into awareness in moments of self-reflection, meditation, or automatism. This allows me to further examine them in their new body.

It starts with a breath, one of the few bodily functions under both conscious and automatic control.There’s a feeling or an emotion. It’s a nudge, a hunch, a thought, or a notion.
