Artist Statement

Justifying your need to work and your practice to people can be exhausting.  A lot of people base your success on money and selling things. It’s always this monetary success. That’s great, but it’s not my motivation for my work. If that happens, I’m happy with it, but it’s more that I’m making the work because I feel this need to make it. It’s this cathartic, almost meditative experience. I see art as a way for self-healing.
