Painting is my voice, my language. It is the truest version of myself that I can only describe in words as a sacred communion of emotional, spiritual and physical presence, serving as a bridge that connects me at a greater level of consciousness with myself and the world around me.

We are all interconnected by something greater than ourselves and I believe that it is in that space where we feel the deepest connection. These works, both personally and collectively, embody the conflicts we face between deceptive constructs and the unapologetic rise to truth by means of disintegrating past and present masks and labels that we shackle to ourselves and others with a fierce unknowing. Encountering the divinity that exists within each of us at a human level, necessitates the dissolution of these false narratives and prompts us to see through the deafening fear to the one commonality that declares….we are all the same.
